Shock Absorber Recommendations.

89 YJ 4 CYL

I am not lifting it as of yet. But it needs shocks badly. I have checked the usual places. Napa uses Monroe sensatrac. Auto Zone has Gabriel. I just think for the price they want I want a better shock. Its my daily driver as well as maybe some weekend trail riding. but nothing real hcrazy just dirt roads and some hills.

I was thinking Trailmaster or Rancho?

What would you recommend? I am looking to spend in the $40.00 range for each.

Thanks in advance for your input.

Go to superlift.com you will be able to find the part # that you need. Then go to there ebay store (there is a link on there page) I have found several new but slightly scratched shocks for $5-$25. and superlift is a name that I would trust. Good luck

There are lots of shock absorber on online stores that might help you. I think Trailmaster would be the best fit for you. I suggest you should not buy surplus shock absorbers if you want a better shock. Cheers!

Level up your ride by investing in a quality . Everyone wants that smooth and peaceful ride. If only all roads were smooth, that would be possible. However, that's not the case. That's why getting this tandem for your suspension is the best you can do. Your ride's shock absorber, otherwise known as the damper is the part in charge of controlling spring oscillation. You can find at least one of this attached at each of your car's wheels.

I have the "top of the line" kyb's on my 4 runner that gets driven like a trophy truck. They ride great though I did blow one out at king of the hammers trying to keep up with race buggies.
