Shocks on a budget

Im trying to decide which shock absorbers to get for my '01 WJ...

Either the ones that Autozone carries for $33.99....

Gabriel Ultra....

http://www.autozone.com/autozone/cat...&parentId=46-0

Or the ones that O'Reilly's carries for $21.99...

Monroe monro-matic Plus
http://www.monroe.com/products/monromatic_truck.asp

Does a higher price mean better shocks?
I would love Bilstiens but cant afford them.
thanks.

Re: Shocks on a budget

Do you want something close to stock shocks?

Re: Shocks on a budget

yea sorry to say the more they cost the better the ride usually.

ask the local dealer what the price is on the stock original one, i believe that about $50- $70

also check http://www.rockauto.com/ they have the basic shocsk like the ones oyu listed for $17

Yeah something close to stock shocks is ok with me. I'm leaning towards the Gabriel shocks.

Re: Shocks on a budget

The rancho RS5000 are not a bad shock either for the price. Sears had them half off a while ago. Around 120-150 a set I think.
