Upgrade Shocks for RRO 2.5" Lift

I have had the RRO lift in for over a year now and would like to install upgraded shocks to improve handling. I called RRO and they could not offer any suggestions. Speaking with a Jeep dealership in Boulder, CO, they said ARB #90026 would fit. Anyone have these installed or know of another option that would work? Hoping to get feedback before I pull the trigger.
thanks!

Re: Upgrade Shocks for RRO 2.5" Lift

dslippy, I was just looking at the those, as part of the Old Man Emu lift; #90026 ($230 each) are specifically for the front; and the rear has 3 different options #60124 ($132 each), 60125, 60126 - depending on your application. haven't heard anything yet from anyone b/c they're too new. seem kind of pricey though, don't you think?

Re: Upgrade Shocks for RRO 2.5" Lift

I would be interested to know if they have a better 'rebound' than the OEM front shocks...

A little too much up/down after going over a bump at highway speeds, I like a 'tighter' suspension.

From looking at the Old Man Emu and Eibach lift write ups on the forum, the aftermarket shock do seem to "response" fairly quickly after experiencing any input .... but then again, that could many be due to higher spring rates

Thanks for the feedback. Costs are on the higher side, but if it will improve handling and stop the excessive shutters from hitting manhole covers, pot holes, highway seams...etc it will be worth it.
