2004_Silver_Sport Yeah I just checked their chart and their shocks for the same lift height are an inch shorter than my current shocks

Muddeprived I ran the Zone Nitro shocks but on my cherokee. Out of the 9 brands of shocks I've tested to date, the Zone Nitros rank 3rd in ride quality (Bilstein #1, OME #2). The nitro shocks really smooth out the imperfections on the road and eliminate any leaning on turns. It's a good shock for the price. Just a FYI, Zone tends to make their shocks on the shorter side to prevent damage to steering/suspension components. I spoke to them about their 4" shock being awfully short compared to others. Be sure to check out their shock guide and get the correct length shock that fits.

4wheelonline has them for $308 w/ free shipping. They were just under $300 when I got mine from them. I ordered Thursday night and had them Saturday morning with the free shipping. They ride very nice and can be adjusted to suit your taste. That was my big buying point since I didn't know if I'd like a stiffer or looser ride. I have the fronts set a little stiffer than the rear due to weight distribution and am very comfortable on roads that I used to hate driving on.

Help with shocks

So I'm looking at getting some new shocks within the next week or 2 and I've narrowed it down to 3 different shocks. First is the BDS 5500 series, then the other 2 are the Zone twin tube nitros, and Zone twin tube hydraulic. The zones are only 34.99 and 39.99 and the BDS are 47.32 but my question is what shock would be the best out of the bunch? Have any of you guys ran any of these? Any other shock suggestions that are around that same price?

Thanks guys and gals
