Shocks on a budget
 
Im trying to decide which shock absorbers to get for my '01 WJ...

Either the ones that Autozone carries for $33.99....

Gabriel Ultra....

Or the ones that O'Reilly's carries for $21.99...

Monroe monro-matic Plus

Does a higher price mean better shocks?
I would love Bilstiens but cant afford them.
thanks.

Do you want something close to stock shocks?

yea sorry to say the more they cost the better the ride usually.

ask the local dealer what the price is on the stock original one, i believe that about $50- $70

also check http://www.rockauto.com/ they have the basic shocsk like the ones oyu listed for $17

Yeah something close to stock shocks is ok with me. I'm leaning towards the Gabriel shocks.

The rancho RS5000 are not a bad shock either for the price. Sears had them half off a while ago. Around 120-150 a set I think.
