All 4 shocks are toast and leaking as well as my steering damper. Is there anything else that I need to buy other than the new shocks and damper? Placing an order on rock auto and saving $50 alone on shocks. I don't want to pay shipping twice. So if their is anything else you know or should replace while doing shocks and steering damper please let me know!

Nope. They should all come with new rubber bushings. Only other thing I can thing of is worn Leaf springs, but not sure you want to go that route :D.

Double check your shock mounts on the frame though and make sure they not cracked/breaking....

If you have a stock YJ you are good to go, but if yours is lifted you will need longer shocks and that is a bit more complicated.

Remove your shocks. Flex out the jeep measure the distance between mount to mount on the extended side then the compressed side. Then buy shocks with those measurements
