+1 to above, a good "jack of all trades" is the OME based on reviews by owners.
Just picked up my second jeep:
99 Sahara, automatic.

I will also throw in Bilstein shocks as good ones. Though when I go to replace mine I will be moving to either OME(Old Man Emu) or the Rancho adjustable RS9000 series

i have the OME nitrocharger shocks and they are amazing, worth every penny. i also have a steering stabilizer from them and it is far better than stock.

I recently replaced my stock shocks with OME. Stock height. What an improvement in ride quality.

For a less expensive shock that still works very well IMO is the Skyjacker Hydro. NOT the Nitro!
