but yea if youre doing front struts, 2 of those monroe kits and you wont need anything for the rear.
Hi there, I am wanting to change the struts in the front and the shocks in the rear but definitely don't want any lift or lowering of the suspension. Should I still change the 4 coil insulators in the back?

If it improves the ride I'm all for it, or if these rear coil insulators ruin over time, shouldnt I change them, especially since I have 120k miles on the jeep? Th for he input.

Most definitely get 4 new isolators for the rears. I put on Bilsteins, then about 3k later replaced the rear isolators at 70k, and it make a big difference in smoothness, handling and ride quality. One upper one was pretty much shot, and most of my driving is highway. Get the newest revision OEM ones at the Jeep dealer, which are on their 4th revision since 2005, and actually very inexpensive.
