New Shocks and Mounts? Help

So long story short I beat my Jeep to hell and back.
I broke a rear shock mount a week back and these rancho shocks sucked.
So I plan on installing new mounts and new shocks.
The question is... What shocks are the best? and are there any good relocation or mount kits for rear shocks on a Tj?

(Considering Bilstein 5100 Shocks)
**On a side note I only have a 2" lift.

The rear shocks are always going to take a beating if not careful.
Actually .... I've seen folks bash the 9000's and the adjustability still worked.

What shock is that 5000, new/old 9000?

Jeeps are light weight, the Tj being lighter. Shock choice is key for a good ride. I ran Skyjacker hydro's for years before switching to the 9000 on my Tj. Switched to cheaper 5000's before I sold the jeep and they rode stiffer.

That being said, shock choice is subjective. You will get a bunch of different opinions.

Anyone with Bilstein's 5100 Shocks? I've heard nothing but good and I'm about to jump on a set.
