To tell if your shocks are worn out;
Using your full body weight, push down hard on each corner of your vehicle.
If the vehicle comes back to rest immediately chances are your shocks are good.
If the vehicle bounces up and down, oscillates, your shocks are worn and need to be replaced.

|Sgt.Shap||maybe they are worn... the leaf springs dont look curved, they look flat, like the ends dont slope up, they just look ------ instead of \-----/ you know what i mean? and the jeep isnt weighed down.|

|jeepjones||Stay away from the Pro Craps, they ride very stiff, the top seals blow easily & the bushings suck. Ever think that maybe your springs are worn out and need to be replaced, seeing how shocks won't control what you are complaining about?|

|Sgt.Shap||also which are more durable and long lasting?|

Which Shocks are better and why?
I am looking for new shocks on my YJ. Its got a 2 - 2.5 inch Old Man Emu lift from previous owner.
Every time I go over a bump, dip offroad, or even a dip on the freeway, it feels like Im bottoming out. Im either hitting the bumpstops or my shocks are bottoming out.
Either way i think I need new shocks.
So Im looking at the following (budget oriented) shocks.
the first bunch are a bit cheaper.
Rough Country hydro
pro comp es1000
Rough Country nitro 9000
Pro Comp es9000 nitro
what do you guys think. how do they compare. do you run them, have you run them?
