Need New Shocks, Any Suggestions?
 
Hello everybody, my shocks are shot after 97K and 5 years. Im looking for shocks that will be an overall improvement over OEM. It seems the following brands tend to come up: Bilstein HD, Edelbrock IAS Performer, and Monroe Reflex. Can anyone recommend a good shock among these 3? I don't offroad and Im going to stick solely on City/highway. I do have to deal with potholes though :lol:. Also, I've been told its a good idea to change the steering stabilizer at the same time, can anyone recommend any particular models? Is it really necessary?

Vehicle info:

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee
No Lift or upcountry, stock height.

Thanks

ive got the bilstein HD's. I think they are great. its kind of a pain getting the bolts off underneath the jeep though. Use some bolt loosener for sure.

I recall you owned the Edelbrocks. What is your opinion of them?

I am definitely leaning towards the Bilsteins HD's. Everybody seems to like them. Sucks that they are yellow and blue :lol:

i like them but they're really expensive. I plan on getting the bilstiens when i drop it because only the back are edelbrock. If you dont mind some used ones. i'll sell them to you.

I won't be buying soon but I'll let you know if anything. In regards to the steering stabilizer, was it a noticeable change? What about the Monroe steering stabilizer?
