InvertChaos I REALLY like my ome shocks. I started off with your exact setup but with the RC shocks and it was a horrible ride. OME NitroSports are much more stable and dampen a lot better. I think you'll find that your Jeep will go pretty darn far off road with that set up provided you have an engine skid and even further if you eventually do a TT like I plan on doing.

If you get the Rancho, take the plate off of each shock with an allen wrench (two screws). The adjustment knob comes off with the plate (does not pull off like the old 9000s). Treat the mechanism inside with some antiseize to prevent rust. I'd suggest rechecking each spring after the snow/road salt season is over.

Good to know. I'll prep mine this weekend.

3025826 They have a lifetime warranty don't they? From what I've read rancho does a pretty good job of honoring it. And I would think that if you are running the rancho myride wireless air adjustment from inside that it would prevent this from happening

Arch Stanton Try Northridge for a decent price on OME shocks. I paid $322 delivered. You could also get a good deal an OME lift from Amazon.com. That's what I should have done!

need opinion on shocks

Well im buyin parts over the winter for my buildup. So far I have my tires, rims skid plate bla bla bla.
Now im $900 away to finish my build. I need wheel spacers 1.25, shocks, 2.5" lift springs (going with rough country)without shocks ( I hear bad things about there shocks) and bump stops. The shocks im looking at are

rancho 9000 xl cause you can select the ride quality BUT a litle pricey.
Front are $75 each (a litle over my buget but not a deal braker). The rear however are $145 (way over my buget for now).
Second option are skyjacker hydro 7000 at $55 each front and back wich is really in my price range. Annybody have these? So I was thinking.
Can i buy front rancho 9000 xkl and rear skyjacker hydros(for now till i have $$$ to buy ranchos for the rear) Will this set up give me a wiered handling?
