my old RS5000 rancho shocks were much smoother than the stoiff stock shock sor some procomp shocks.

which shocks do you actually have?

ProComp ES3000's are about as cheap as you'll get and they are hydro's so the ride's not too stiff IMO. There are others that are better but it'll cost.

Had the RS9000's and replaced 'em with 36" RS5000's. Ride quality is about the same and for a whopping $39/ea, you can't go wrong.

Here's a thread detailing the install -> Click Here <-

i think most people don´t ned that extended shocks. a normal suspension with stock CAs can´t flex that much...

sure, sure, but the point was the the RS5000's run about as well as the 9000's and at $39/ea, you can't go wrong.

Just select the lengths that you want and go from there.

Oh, and I've run the ProComp MX6's on my truck and would still recommend the RS5000's...

i really dont know which brand i have currently. but im sure the guy i bought the jeep from put the whole lift in back in 1999 and the shocks must be that old. it feels so stiff i just want to replace them for cheap.

I have a 4 inch lift and I love my Bilstein. I have 5100 series bought through quadratec. I have always used bilstein for all my cars.
