  • Shocks- best brand and where to buy?

    Well for the 5th time on one side I ripped off one of the lower shock mounts in the rear. Bummer is that I kept going without taking it off- read; really stupid- and bent the shock so it is wasted. These shocks are old as dirt so it's not really that much of a loss. However, money is tight so I gotta be economical and I figure I might as well get a whole new set as long as it doesn't crush me financially.

    Also, I need some longer travel ones as that is why I can't get as much droop as I'd like in the front in particular- almost rolled yesterday for the lack of this.

    So, what are the opinions? I had Rancho RS5000s (yes, they are that old) and the other 3 depsite being bashed to hell still damp pretty darn good. What are the thoughts on Explorer Pro Comp? Bilsteins are too much $$$.

    Finally, where should I get them? 4Wheel Parts has a pretty good sale going on now, but am not sure where else.

    Thanks for the input,

    '95 YJ getting to have more damage than mods- is this a good thing?

    You can check out KB Offroad for sure -- I don't know much about shocks but I'm sure they can answer any questions you might have. Support them if you can, they help keep this site running!

      I've been running the Explore ProComp ES3000 shocks. They feel pretty good on the highway, unfortunately, I'm not sure about offroad (haven't had a chance to test em).
