Best shocks for a lift??
Hey guys, I'm looking for opinions on some shocks for a lift im going to be doing soon... I had Rancho 9000's on my previous 2 jeeps, but i was thinking about those Bilsteins that ad the 3/8" lift that come stock from Mopar... any thoughts or other recommendations would be much appreciated.

I use my jeep as a daily driver, and off road once in a while so im looking for a good shock that provides a comfortable ride while still performing off road.

In my opinion, Bilsteins will offer you the most comfortable ride.

Old Man Emu makes pretty good shocks too!

Bilsteins for sure. They are rated among the best of the best

Will the Bilsteins work for my 06 WK Overland front if I put a Superlift 4" suspension lift? I understand that the Superlift kit uses the stock front struts by adding spacers, and comes with new shocks for the rear. So I assume if I install Bilstein front struts prior to the lift, I should be ok... Anyone know differently?

Re: Best shocks for a lift??
time consuming if you have a superlift kit but fairly easy. you will need spring compressors and DONT FORGET TO AD THE WASHERS!

Thanks for the input.... I guess I will hold off getting the bilsteins until I get the lift installed so the shop can do it all at once...
