Shocks, nitro or hydro on a ZJ and what size are you running with your lift?

I will be adding a 2" spacer to my 3" coils soon. What are some recommendations?

That you get all adjustable arms, track bars, and better steering.

After that, measure shock mount to shock mount with the axle at full bump. Buy shocks ruth a compressed length 3/4-1" shorter than that measurement.
As for type, depends upon your budget and goals.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.
