Re: Shocks

Many like the Biltein shocks. I have used Monroe before, but have now KYB gas-a-just on my jeep. This is a mono shock, which is a bit stiffer then original, but gives better control. The price was good as well.

Re: Shocks

I had an 02 GC with the Up-Country suspension, which used high pressure gas shocks. I went with the Bilstein 4600 series when it came time to replace them. They were an excellent replacement shock.

Re: Shocks

I was reading about the Skyjacker 7000 series. Any thoughts on these?

Added the 4600s first then upgraded to the UC springs on my 04. Hard to beat for a daily driver.

Re: Shocks

Bilstiens were great on my non-lifted WJ. HUGE improvement over stock. I've also heard good things about Koni and KYB for handling. If you're lifting, that's a whole other story.
