zone shocks

For a better part of 5 months I would hear an occasional squeek in rear. Found 1st time rear door had enough of the 35" tire. Installed the mopar swing. Then squeek came back found lower shock bushings were wearing. Wd40 calmed it. Then all hell broke loose and they squeeked all the time. The bushings are shot. I replaced these shocks appro. 7 months ago. They are junk. Ended up putting the stock shocks back one. They are 1.5 yrs old.i know they are a vender on here. Then found 1 shock was blown. I dont wheel every weekend. But I do go. I dont reccomend them.

My zone shocks are problem free after 2.5 years. I would warrant that issue was more likely the stock design of shock mounting in wranglers and the specific bumpstop application. Every blown shock I have seen was causes by bumpstops being set up incorrectly, usually completely lacking.

Now I can't speak for their JK kits, but I don't see where there would be a huge difference. Also the bushing is a very small, cheap part of the shock. If the bushings were shot they could easily be replaced. Do the shocks on JKs mount on a bar pin?

I'm sorry you had a bad experience with them, that is very disappointing. Did you contact them at all about the issues?
