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||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.|

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 05:04 PM|
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.|

|mrcarcrazy||Unless you like musical springs. (x3 keep em in)|
|07-27-2010 03:41 PM|
|Jerry Bransford||X2, keep it in place.|
|07-27-2010 03:20 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?
