I think you can just go with bar pin eliminators. I've got some JK Sahara shocks waiting to install and got front and rear on eBay for cheap.

He is. You can fit JK shocks on a TJ. You just have to press out the metal tube in the bushing on the bottom of the front shocks.

To OP. I've seen it done wit ha vice or press, spark plug socket, and a socket a bit smaller to press it out.. I was working on mine with a clamp and got it to about half way, but then I had to head back to school so it;s a half done project. I tried going to autozone to pick up the entire rubber bushing but they had no idea what I was talking about...
