Best shocks for a lift??

Hey guys, I'm looking for opinions on some shocks for a lift im going to be doing soon... I had Rancho 9000's on my previous 2 jeeps, but i was thinking about those Bilsteins that ad the 3/8" lift that come stock from Mopar... any thoughts or other recommendations would be much appreciated.

I use my jeep as a daily driver, and off road once in a while so im looking for a good shock that provides a comfortable ride while still performing off road.

Thanks!

In my opinion, Bilsteins will offer you the most comfortable ride.

Old Man Emu makes pretty good shocks too!

Re: Best shocks for a lift??

Will the Bilsteins work for my 06 WK Overland front if I put a Superlift 4" suspension lift? I understand that the Superlift kit uses the stock front struts by adding spacers, and comes with new shocks for the rear. So I assume if I install Bilstein front struts prior to the lift, I should be ok... Anyone know differently?

Re: Best shocks for a lift??

time consuming if you have a superlift kit but fairly easy. you will need spring compressors and DONT FORGET TO AD THE WASHERS!

Thanks for the input.... I guess I will hold off getting the bilsteins until I get the lift installed so the shop can do it all at once...
