Re: Shock Absorbers???

I need help in this subject too. Are there any standouts for City/highway shocks that are an overall improvement over stock? Im debating between Monroe Reflex vs Bilstein HD. Are there any other good ones and is there a trustworthy place to get these for a good price.

Re: Shock Absorbers???

I've heard alot of good feedback from people running black diamonds. Supposedly they are a good cheap shock that is close to the stock ride.

Re: Shock Absorbers???

My only complaint with the Edelbrock Shocks are that they dont really absorb much, I live in Miami which is a traffic mess, doing 30-45 MPH you can feel and see the truck bobbing up and down on very little ripples on the road.

Re: Shock Absorbers???

I just put 4 Bilsteins on my Overlander a few months ago and since my old shocks were so bad they seem awesome..LOL. Picked them up on ebay from a large seller for 220 shipped.

I have a '99 F250 that I use a little doing stuff around the house and just put a set of Rancho 5000 on them. 4wheelonline.com had them for 165/all for and rancho has a 50 buck mail in debit card reate till August. So $115 for all 4 when I get the rebate back. Not bad

Re: Shock Absorbers???

I just put the bilstein HD on my 04. I've had the front on for about a month and a half and just installed the rear yesterday and took it out for a quick test. It handled everything fine and I was going pretty quick through bumps and dips. It was definately better than stock but most aftermarket will be. I got them from shockwarehouse.com for just under 300 for all. Dealing with them was a good experience. The rear were on backorder for a couple weeks, and when they were finally ready the company called me to make sure I still wanted them and to let me know they were shipping them that day.

Re: Shock Absorbers???

Email to Jeeps Unlimited forum member Nick Iannuzzi...Kolak@aol.com. He has an internet business for supplying Jeep parts of all sorts, and is a great guy to work with. He's aligned with Kevin's Off Road, and you can see what they recommend there. As to Edelbrocks: they are great shocks, and their warranty service is top notch. The OP who wrote about the bushings could have just called them, and they would have sent the bushings for free.
