Brand new Rubi shocks for my Sport....yay or nay

For $50 for the set, it's a smoking deal, but what would I gain adding these to my 2012 Sport? I plan on a complete lift in the fall/winter, but in the meantime, these have piqued my interest at this price.

Opinions?

It will feel a lot better on road and off. I did it to my sport and its a very noticeable difference.

I put Bilstein HD's on my JKU. The ride is nice but I think it might be too harsh for a lot of people, including for my wife's JK. So, I got her take-off Rubicon shocks. It was a completely different ride afterwards. It was the best $50 I could've spent on her jeep.

Good deal! Thanks for everyone's opinions, I'll be picking them up next week as he's a couple hours away from me.
