jgorm Get a high quality gas charged monotube shock like the bilsteins. Hydraulic shocks ride very harsh. There is a reason why some shocks cost $25 ea and some cost $150+ ea.

doclouie There are many good shocks out there, but I must say that when you buy a manufacturer's shocks you get what they thought was the best ride. That may or may not be true as we all like our Jeeps in our own way. You can let the manufacturer decide for you or you can get adjustables. Rancho 9000s are great and I will never own another Jeep without them. I can have the Jeep ride as soft or as hard as I choose and the big point "I get to choose". Rancho also has a $100 rebate going on right now. I got mine from for just over $60 a shock shipped. You cannot go wrong with these shocks.

Phrankoff I need to figure out which shocks to buy. Are OME better shocks for DD?

Rubicon06Va I bought the 4" lift Bilstein 5100 w/o boot to replace my SJ hydros. They are great gas shocks. I am buying the FRONTS this week.

jp2611 just had an OME lift installed last week-ride SOOO much better-and more room looks better also.

Munson821 I have OME all the way around and love em. Pretty reasonable price I think.

Gorving3 I haven't replaced the ones on my 2001 Sahara yet but have been wondering about the Monroe Sensa-trac (I think that's what it's called). Supposed to be soft on smooth roads but stiffen up when the going gets harsh or rough. I've heard Bilstens can be a little harsh riding but don't quote me.

Which rear shocks to get?

Lookin to buy some rear shocks for my 04 sport. Ive heard good reviews about OME and Bilstein. But which model of Bilsteins or OME should I look at?
