New Shocks Help!
 
Greetings Jeep community! Im here today cause I need some help with my WK. Im getting new shocks for it but I dont know which one should I get....I need to know if the Ranchos RSX 17000 fits well (front and rear) I did some research and I found that the exact models that work are the RSX17522 (front) and RSX17133 (rear) Is this right? If someone can help me out, Ill be thankful!! :thumbsup:

Get the stock Bilsteins! I'm using my phone phone or I'd post a link. Depends if you're gonna lift it too and what not. I have a stock 07 wk and I'm getting the bilsteins soon. They even lift your jeep up a whole 3/8ths of an inch!! Haha. Good luck bud and welcome to the club!

it appears Bilsteins do 2 types, an OE replacement or heavy duty sports, which is the best one to go for and which one raises the suspension??

thanks

I've had rancho 9000s on a few diff trucks and I didn't really like em. Snapped 2 front shocks on my 98 f150! IMO I say go Bilstein!

I ran them on my 01' WJ and they performed really well, no issues. However, can't really compare running a totally different series shock on a totally different vehicle...:D That's kinda why I asked if anyone had tried them on a WK...
Off topic, but if you snapped 2 you had something else going on...but I'm sure you already knew that..:thumbsup:
