Shocks

What is a good brand of shocks to put on my 92 YJ. It been a long time since I have purchased shocks. I am planning to replace all 4.

Old Man Emu....they are designed and valved for Jeeps so your just not putting a truck or car shock on your vehicle.

What do you use your Jeep for?

What's your budget?

Heavy offroad is a different shock (and more $) than a mall crawler.

Hunting off road and trailing not to much rock crawling.

There must be a 1000 threads on this. After reading most of them, OME or Bilstein seemed to be the most popular with the lifted crowd. Mine is stock and I went with Monroe Matics. Inexpensive and give a great ride on the street. May not hold up well for your application.

I was looking into the Rancho 9000XL. I have heard a lot of good reviews. They are adjustable for you ride.

They are nice. Before I worked with Rancho, I had a YJ I started with 5000's and when the 9000's came out my buddy said I should try them. I said, "Naw the 5's are great." 2 years latter went to the 9000's, they were great.
Also they usually go on rebate say March 1st or so.
