Zone suspension lift q's

-Are the nitro shocks worth it that much more or should I just get the hydraulic ones. And use the extra money I spent towards leveling spacers
I purchased the 3inch lift from zone about 2 weeks ago. I was contacted pretty quickly, and was told that the nitro shocks that come with the kit 20$ more than the hydraulic shocks. I just got another email saying that they are estimated to be in another 3 weeks from now, but it could be even longer.

My friend has the normal white shocks. I got to ride in her jeep, 2011 2 door rubicon with their 4 inch lift. The normal shocks felt fine, extended well and road nicely on the road.

Good to know. I told them I'm gonna wait 3 more weeks after that we are gonna start talking "what can you do for me" ill probably just get the gas ones and see if they can throw in the level spacers or even a stubby antenna?!

I have the white BDS shocks and they are good to go!

BDS makes Zone from what I gather...

Nice, how do they ride? Did you put them in yourself. I just looked through my email. And my lift actually will be delivered tomorrow. :jumpingupanddown:

They ride very well. I at first had the tires aired to 35 PSI and it rode like a wagon. Dropped the air down to 28 and it is Cadilac smooth.

I did not install, I had ECGS install the life when they did the 8.8 install and regeared the front axle.

I just put a winch on and a heavy front bumper and saw NO sag in the lift. Still 39 inches from concrete floor to bottom of fender flare.

Zone 3inch lift is in. Not as easy when all you havens a torqued socket wrench. And no drill but I made it work.
