bato thx guys. I was reading here Jeep Shock Installation - Doetsch Tech DT8000

seems like they were a pretty good ride on the TJ. Anyway I will do some more research. One other question though. When I looked at ordering then the options were 2", 3", or 4" of lift. I have 2.5" of lift so should I get the ones made for a 3" or 2"?

Jerry Bransford I don't have personal experience with the DT9000 shocks but I understand they are valved for a heavier vehicle than the Wrangler is which would likely make them ride pretty stiffly. I did run the DT3000s for 3-4 years and they had a good ride.

I havent heard much about the doetsch, but I know that the Skyjackers will also run you around the $40 dollars too.

Jerry Bransford My '04 came with OME NitroChargers and while the Jeep does handle great with them, they are stiffer riding than I expected and definitely stiffer than the RE Monotubes I installed on my previous TJ.

x2 on this...

Although if they are out of your price range, Skyjacker hydros are half the price and a decent ride for the money.

530ktm OME shocks are great.

bato Guess I'm not sure, something that will be good on and off road, stiff doesn't bother me just want a good shock for the trails.

Jerry Bransford Do you like a firm or softer ride?
07-27-2010 04:04 PM
bato Great thank you guys, always there when I need ya!

Now that I have springs I need to decide on shocks. I was thinking the Doetsch tech dt8000's or the RC performance 2.2 shocks what do you guys think?

jwm1986 If you end up with a bad one like myself NAPA sells an OE copy for a reasonable price.
07-27-2010 02:54 PM
mrcarcrazy Unless you like musical springs. (x3 keep em in)
07-27-2010 02:41 PM
Jerry Bransford X2, keep it in place.
07-27-2010 02:20 PM
530ktm You would want to keep that in there.

rubber spring isolator?

When I put in new taller springs do I remove or keep in the rubber (i believe it's called a spring isolator) piece that is on top of the stock springs?
