Mono or twin tube shocks
I did a search and found alot of information on shocks. Unfortunately, none of which really answered my question; which is:
I have a CJ7 on which I will be installing a 2.5" RE lift. Which shock will give me the best ride, a mono tube or twin tube?
I have always purchased the twin tube design shocks, mainly because I was under the impression that the gas charged mono tube shocks would make for a very stiff ride, especially on a light weight vehicle.
Most of my riding is done on the street while my off highway riding is slow in sand/mud. At these speeds and conditions, I don't think foaming or fade would be a concern so would a gas shock be worthwhile?
What are your experiences and do you have any recommendations as far as type or brand? I was going to go with RE's shocks.
All input is appreciated!
