Pro Comp shocks.
 
I'm trying to pick out a descent road shock. What do you guys think of Pro Comp? Please don't just say they suck, let me know why you think that.

I have them and think they are too stiff looking to replace them soon.

lordmike 04-11-2012 12:27 PM

I'm also looking at the skyjacker hydros, any tips?

I just got the skyjacker hydros, hopefully installing them tomorrow along with a Teraflex 2in bb. I will let you know how the ride is.

I have the pro comps and looking to upgrade to something a little smoother and softer. They're not so bad off road but on road you feel it all

I have pro comp 9000s and there a lot stiffer then the old man emu I have on my previous tj I hear rancho 9000 or bilstein 5100 are really good

lordmike 04-11-2012 12:41 PM

yeah, I'd like to put the bilstein on but wow are they expensive.

Yea there are but it's like they say you get what you pay for I'm fine with my pro comps ill wait till they give up or when I find a deal which ever comes first

I have the Pro Comps also, very stiff ride. :nonono: I'm wanting to upgrade also.

My current shocks are totally shot. They are just a couple of empty tubes that spend their time smashing into each other as I go down the highway... I'm pretty sure I could stuff a banana in there and it'd be a significant performance upgrade...

Pro comp shocks a notorouslly n bueno on jeeps thy are a soft shock which relates to a stiff ride. I know at 2 other ppl that bought them nd replaced them wih in 6months. I currently have pc 3000s on my lj nd i hate them. But im to cheap to get new ones so ill deal with the mistake of purchasing them untill i need ones due to them goin out or my lift goin up but i know i wont be able to sell them cause there worthless. If u still want a set of 4 i got a friend with a set sitting in his garage.

Switched to Rancho 9000XLs and love them on my lifted TJ. Worth the price IMHO.

I have had experience with both pro comp es3000 and skyjacker hydros, the pro comp shocks were really jarring and stiff it didn't even feel like a "jeep" it felt like I was riding in a radio flyer it literally was just terrible then went to skyjacker hydros I noticed a very small difference in my opinion both of these shocks are bottom of the barell and I hated both they ride pretty much the same to me. So I decided to quit throwing my money in a rat hole and completely changed my suspension went all around old man emu coils and shocks with other jks stuff and THAT is where I like my jeep it's a firm tight comfortable ride with almost no body roll it was such a relief after running the other garbage old man emu is an excellent choice

Well you've successfully talked me out of the pro comps! I order today, so I better make up my mind pretty quickly

loganw 04-12-2012 10:40 AM

I have pro comps too and they are extremely stiff. Go with something else

I had them and replaced with TerraFlex. The Procomps were crap.

lordmike 04-12-2012 03:26 PM

I just purchased a set of skyjacker hydros, we'll see what happens. I'll post pictures as I get my machine set up.
