    I originally imported and installed a 4.25" Zone kit. 3 years later I need new shocks, trouble is in Europe we don't have a lot of options. I have a 2.5 97, metal bumpers, 33s, winch. I researched on the forum and ruled out the crappy ones so I am left with the Bilstein 5100 or the Fox 2.0...

    I just completed the install of an AEV 2.5" lift without Geometry Correction Brackets. Although there are a few videos that document the install I did encounter a few obstacles that weren't mentioned and a few that were. I thought I would provide a series of photos of the install as well as the...

    Hi, I have a RC 4 inch x series lift. I bought because it included new control arms and it was a decent price. Its been almost a year since it was installed, and I've realized that the RC n3 shocks and coils are terrible. The ride is not enjoyable. I've been looking at the Rancho RS9000XL's and...

    2006 Jeep TJ Unlimited (LJ) Rubicon Very very unique vehicle. It doesn't get driven every day anymore, but does get driven weekly to maintain everything. This jeep has never left the state of Texas and never left the pavement for 95% of it's life. With that being said it has never seen any...

    Have patience with me, like my jeep, I'm a bit slow. I would like a smoother ride, I wheel maybe 3 times out of 3 months and my jeep is my DD. Right now I'm running Pro Comp, I'm confused if soft shocks cause a smoother ride or stiffer. My shocks are old and it feels like they lean to much to...

    OK, just got my new TJ that has a 2" spacer lift. The choices of shocks is making my head spin. I believe I have it narrowed down to these three: Old Man Emu, Bilstein, and Fox. All are approximately $100 each, so price is not really a factor. I drive the vast majority on road in northern...

    Greetings. Very soon I plan to purchase 31" tires with a 1" BL. I wanted to ask if a 1" BL will clear 31's with no problem/rubbing. The wheels will be 15x8's as well. I was thinking of purchasing the Daystar 1" BL. Seems to have decent reviews. Can't afford a suspension lift at this time...

    I have posted some other threads recently, and have gotten Great Feeddback! This Forum is awesome. From feedback on tires so far I am leaning toward getting 315 70 17 Duratrac Tires for a 2014 JKU. I have bought a 2.5 Teraflex Budget Boost, want to 17 wheels on it and 5100 Bilstein Shocks...

    Hi guys, new to the forum. The PO of my '05 LJ installed what looks like a Rubicon Express 3.5" lift. The coils are about 15.5" long which is between the 15" suggesting 3" of lift and the 16" that suggest a 4" lift. I'm running a hard top though, which may have compressed the springs a little...

    Hey guys, I have had my 03 TJ for a couple years now and its coming time to replace my shocks. From what I can tell, the PO put a 2" skyjacker coilover on it and I am currently running Skyjacker Hydro 7000's on it. On the front I am running the H7055S shocks and on the rear I am running...

    I am pretty much 100% sold on the 3.5" Duroflex lift kit for $2k. But the six pack shocks seem like a pretty steep premium. So I am looking at running the AEV Tuned Bilstein 5160 Shocks from Qtec for $800. Will this work? Any issues? Or should I just man up and pay $400 more for the 6...

    Need specific lift advice: I want a 2-2.5" coil lift to go w/ my 285/70R17 Duratracs I have searched 3 forums and Google and haven't quite found the answer to my question here: I just had a set of 285/70R17 Duratracs installed last week on my JKU. I bought them from someone who had them on his...

    I just ordered my bilstein 5100 shocks. I heard so many good things that I bit the bullet and bought them. Now I'm debating a few things. I have 2" coil spacers, the bilstein shocks are intended for a 3" lift. Not a huge difference but it counts. I plan on ditching the coil spacers and getting...

    Can anyone tell me what Bilstein 5100 Shocks I need for a 06 Sport with a 3" lift? :confused:

    I've got stock front and back shocks and springs, and the ride is really jarring every time you hit a bump, hard. I thought shocks were supposed to get bouncy and stuff when they are old? Anyways, I want a soft ride. I don't want to bounce up and down after hitting a bump, but I don't want a...

    I finally got my front shocks done (Bilstein 5100's all around). For those who are asking 'what shock', you can't go wrong with them. My '03 X rides so much better! Now to find the money to replace my control arms... I'm not sure why the PO put such short shocks on the front? The front -...
