Quick Question

I bought my Jeep not to long ago (99) and have been trying to familiarize myself with everything. I am not extremely mechanical inclined but am trying to learn as I go.

I know I need some new shocks as the ones I currently have are the original shocks. I am leaning towards some Rancho but I am unsure if my Jeep has a lift (thinking spacer coil) and I want to make sure to buy the right size shock.
It has aftermarket rims and 31 x 10.5 tires that have no problem with rubbing.

Here is a photo of the suspension just curious if any of you guys can let me know if there is a coil spacer at the top and if so what size shock should I get?

Nope, no coil spacer, thats just the stock rubber isolator you see there so it's not metal on metal... advise on what shocks is gonna be hard, if you have plans to lift it in the near future I'd buy stock replacements from autozone or something like that. If you plan on keeping it stock for a long while, I recommend spending the money on something high quality ie. Bilstein, old man emu, etc... I know there expensive, but I finally splurged on a set of bilsteins and couldn't be happier, they ride awesome!

ditto on the Bilsteins

With something like shocks and brakes, that you only have to replace every few years, my philosophy is spend the money for really good ones. I've never had a bad experience with Bilsteins on any application.
