New shocks on the jk.

When we bought the jk I had the dealer install the procomp lift for warranty. That was a good thing because every procomp shock had to be replaced at some point and multiple times on the rear. Warranty is up now and blew another rear shock so my oldest son talked me into putting the bilstein 5100 series on it. I know some people will say a shock is a shock but I'm here to say there is no comparison between the them. I know the procomps were the lower end shocks but wow. Just highway driving alone with the bilsteins is a 100 times better.

When l was plowing snow I put Monroe Magnums on the Jeep. They are way too stiff for anything else, and I'm thinking about Bilsteins. I'm glad you like them. They'll be my next job.

I have RSX9000s on my CJ (no remote control). I can choose what ride I want.
