Re: Shock Replacement

I have the Monroe reflex shocks, which where quite good, but after 70.000 km i feel that they are not that good anymore. Iīm looking for some new as well and many on here went for the Bilsteins.
Isee now that they sell shocks from the brand Sensen overhere. Anybody know this brand?

Re: Shock Replacement

BILSTEIN!!!!!!!! I've never liked a shock more than these. Great, sporty ride without being too stiff or too "soccer mom".

Re: Shock Replacement

Got my Bilstein from Kolak two years ago and worth the money.

Re: Shock Replacement

Bilstein 4600's are what I put on my WK at 135k and it made a night and day difference. Improved cornering and stability while not being uncomfortable on a rut lined highway. Only drawback is since they are such a high pressure shock they can be a little harsh broken pavement/potholes at slower speeds. Kolak gave me a good deal on them and I felt they are worth the added cost over some value brands. My brother installed a set of Monroe's and compared his rides like the shocks were never changed. IMO there isn't a better shock/strut for the Grand Cherokee with stock suspension.
