So I can't decide which shocks to put on my wk I read some post about Monroe's 58463 compared with the blisten shocks but my question is if I go with the Monroe sensation trac(ford) will the be capable of taking the grind of a good trail? Any help would be great I'm also considering doing the rough country 2" along with them?
Can anyone help

Check out the Rancho shocks... division of Monroe oriented to SUVs.
RS9000 adjustables with remote control

The Edelbrock IAS is also good.

Do you have a 4Wheel parts in the area?

I used the Rancho adjustables on a ZJ, mainly because I did a lot of high speed high desert ground pounding and they are one of the more capable shocks until you get into the fancy dual tube hardcores. The remote allows you to harden/soften them, although admittedly the Rancho concept of "soft" is still firmer than factory.

The IAS is a really good on/off road shock. Not as hard core as the Rancho or even a Monroe adjustable, but possibly a bit better for on-road comfort unless you would like the Rancho adjustables for the ability to really stiffen them up when canyon carving--at which point you would want really good tires.

Call 4Wheel parts, as there may not be a fitment of the IAS for the 2005-2010 GC.

The Bilstein and KYB are nice, but not in the same class as a Rancho...

Edelbrock seems to be de-emphasizing shocks...

I checked I-net for sources re: Rancho 9000 for my 06 GC Laredo w/4.7 V8 and QT2, mostly stock. No site showed the 9000 series for the vehicle. I did find one site that showed the 5000 (not adjustable) for the vehicle.
Question is: Will the 9000 fit the vehicle even though it is not addressed on any of the sites I visited? If so, any modifications required to the vehicle or the shock? If so, what?
Thanks.

Re: Monroe or what??

go monroe, you can prob get them realtively cheap on amazon.

ranchos are a horrible ride. theres a guy on here or another forum who decided on ranchos for his WK as he was in a rush- hes replacing them with a set of monroes/bilsteins as they are that sorry of a shock.

monroes or bilsteins- thats the best options
