New question - Quality of ride VS Trial riding?
 
I've been looking at a small suspension lift, somewhere around 2-2.5 with the coils and shocks together in a kit. One of the kits I found had the Pro Comp ES3000 shocks. I read someone posted in the TJ forum that those shocks ride very stiff. Now most of my cars before the Jeep were performance cars, where a stiff ride is what you want for cornering and racing. But, isn't a stiff ride also good for when your trailin'? Or should it be a smooth ride for both? This is my daily driver. I'll trail, pull, and camp, but not rock climb. I'm just wondering what you look for when you do both?

Thanks.
Greg

no you dont want a stiff ride, you want a nice ride ina jeep, a stiff ride means that you may need a mouth gaurd to protect your teeth. jeeps ride awful to begin with and if its a stiff ride it will be unbearable, also off road you want as much flex as possible and stiff shocks dont really help that out as far as i know

Or just get a set of Rancho 9000's. When it needs to be stiff, you make it that way. When you want a soft ride dial them down.
