I currently have a 2" spring lift with worn out Pro Comp shocks. The ride is okay and I don't want to lift it any higher. Since adding a beefy front bumper and winch, it has about a 1" drop in the front.

I need to replace the shocks and was thinking of OME since I already bought their steering stabilizer. I'm now on the fence to replace the springs to allow the Jeep to sit level.

A local shop is offering the Fox billet shocks and BDS 2" springs for close to $700. The springs came with BDS shocks but they are willing to provide a credit towards the Fox shocks. I'm not up to speed on how well these shocks are.

Lets hear from you on if this is a good selection for a DD smooth ride.

I run the bds fox shocks on my 06 lj with ome 2.5" springs and on my f-350 work truck that spends about a 100 miles a day on the highway and another 50 or so miles a day off road in the oilfield, I won't run any other shocks.

If you like the springs you have now or you just dont want to spend that kind of money on new springs then get a set 1in or .75in leveling spacers

I'm satisfied with my current springs minus the sag. I guess a spacer to level it out would be good.

So regarding the shocks, Fox seem to be pretty good?
