Re: How does this sound for my 06 WK

70k on your Overland; the shocks will be shot for sure if they ahve not been done. If you want a smooth OEM ride, go with stock Mopar replacements, or KYB GR-2. THe Bilstein HD are quite a bit harsher than stock, but are livable, and really good offroad. If I could do it all over again I would go with stock shocks over the Bilstiens for a smooth ride, along with the SRT front and rear sway bars, new bushings, brackets and end links, which really helps with stability and handling without sacrificing much ride comfort. When you replace shocks, make sure to put on new coil spring isolators, as they are worn and softened up by 70k which makes for poor handling and a bouncy ride.
