Question New Shocks Help!

Greetings Jeep community! Im here today cause I need some help with my WK. Im getting new shocks for it but I dont know which one should I get....I need to know if the Ranchos RSX 17000 fits well (front and rear) I did some research and I found that the exact models that work are the RSX17522 (front) and RSX17133 (rear) Is this right? If someone can help me out, Ill be thankful!!

Get the stock Bilsteins! I'm using my phone phone or I'd post a link. Depends if you're gonna lift it too and what not. I have a stock 07 wk and I'm getting the bilsteins soon. They even lift your jeep up a whole 3/8ths of an inch!! Haha. Good luck bud and welcome to the club!

I ran them on my 01' WJ and they performed really well, no issues. However, can't really compare running a totally different series shock on a totally different vehicle... That's kinda why I asked if anyone had tried them on a WK...
Off topic, but if you snapped 2 you had something else going on...but I'm sure you already knew that..
