Softer Shocks

Does anyone know a good set of shocks for two inch lift. I want a softer smoother ride than I have, the shock I have now feels like i'm riding on bricks.

I like them a lot. With stock coils I thought they rode a bit to far on the soft side but I have OME HD coils now and they work excellent together. They are quality shocks made in their own factory.

If you have the cash, and willing to drop a bit more money, Bilstiens are a good choice

I have the 4600's. They're a couple bills cheaper than the 5100's (and a bit firmer) but I think they still ride well.

I have a set of Bilstein HDs that I installed on the ZJ at 48,000 miles in July of 2002. Current mileage is 151,000 shocks STILL good. Better damping than the OE shocks on my WK.

Just put 5100's on mine, and it's a night and day difference from stock shocks. Great shock and worth every penny.
