I'm not sure where I'm gonna order yet but if you go to the wk area threads, and go to the sticky files you'll see Scotts wonder write up on all wk suspension. Check it out and pm him if you have more questions. Scott knows his sh!t and won't do you wrong! Unless you say his bloodied best is ugly! Haha jk but gl w your search. Let me know what you do cuz I'm lookin to do the same...

Yea, I've checked it out many times, just still a little confused. I'll take another look today, might as well order one since I'm going to take the Jeep to my buddies garage for the shock/struts anyways. I'll let you know if I get one.

Tirerack gave me the FSD part numbers and prices over a month ago, and said not in stock yet but they can special order with 6 week delivery until they get them in stock. They are made in the Neterhlands, and have been available for the GC overseas for a year or so.

front 8240-1264 $ 168 each
back 8240-1265 $ 168 each

here is the product flyer; much smoother ride, and better handling and steering than new OEM's. http://www.koni.com/fileadmin/user_u..._2100-4108.pdf

Re: Best Shocks and Struts

all you need are bar and two bushings. Call justforjeeps.com and use code save10 if its over $100 or jeepgarage5 if its under $100. Thye will hook you up with the bar/bushings

Re: Best Shocks and Struts

Cool, thanks Scott! I found if you scroll down on the page you can order each piece individually. $125 total with shipping and $10 off coupon code. Can't wait to throw this and the Bilstein shocks on! It will be a whole new ride

Of course I want the +rep, haha. I'm thinking I might do the rear shocks and sway bar myself, and let my mechanic buddy do the front struts since I don't want to mess with compressing the springs. (do they have to be compressed? Now that I think about it I wonder if the Jeep setup is different, any input?). If they don't need to be compressed I'll do it all myself with a full write up, otherwise just the rear shocks and sway bar.
