New shocks- no lift

I have been hearing a squeaking sound whenever I hit bumps in my tj, so I figure it's probably time for new shocks. What are good shocks for a jeep without a lift while not breaking the bank?

Grease all greaseable joints and hit all other joints with WD40.

Go savvy fox resi's or BS 5100's

I would wait if you plan on a lift in the near future but if you need just factory replacements, monroes are pretty good. Wouldn't make since to buy twice if you plan on lifting it later..If lifted, then consider Bilsteins, OME, or adjustable Rancho 9000's..

Just ordered Bilstein 5100 from Kolak Performance. Price was much lower. Kolak@aol.com or search the forum.

FYI...the front Bilstein 5100 for 0"-2" lift are on a national back order. Not really sure when they will be back in stock. Hopefully in the next couple of weeks!

go with the Bilstein HD 4200 series. they're a good choice for a stock vehicle.
