Default What shocks?

I am in need of shocks and wondering what some of you recommend, it is not lifted. I was looking at Monroe Sensatracs. Jeep will not be used off road, just want it to ride and handle good. Thanks

bilstein or edelbrock, a little more $$$ but will firm up your ride (ie less body lean)

The Monroe's are actually pretty decent for the money, but they don't compare to Bilsteins on any level.

Just don't go with the cheap skyjackers or rancho hydro shocks. They suck. Monroe reflex are decent also.

Think I'm going with the Bilsteins, seem pretty reasonable and I'm getting tired of this thing handling like a couch going down the rd. " Everything Jeep" told me about a good place to buy em.
www.eshock.com I think it was, I have the # in my phone, ordering them today.

Thanks for all the input guys. This site is great, helped me a lot with this WJ project.

Im 99% sure WJ rear bilsteins are on a nationwide back order. Id love to have Billstein's in my dub but the no-name nitro shocks that are in it still ride great.

Monroe's have a $40 rebate right now so all 4 are about $100 when all said and done.
