Suspension kit on rockauto

http://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/j...sion+kit,10922

Is this kit good quality? Is it worth getting to replace my shocks that have 250000km on them? Suspension is pretty bouncy and creaks a bit now as I'm pretty sure everything is original suspension wise. Is there anything else better at a similar price point?

Hard to say. You get 8 shocks? Must be an error. The bottom shock doesn't look like anything that fits a ZJ. I would find the extended/compressed lengths of the 4 ZJ shocks if possible. Or you could gamble and order it and see what you get.

Here is the rear shock for $14, so rockauto price seems high...

It's listed as fitting the ZJ and the Nissan Frontier?

What garbage.

PM Kolak, he'll get you better prices and you can trust that if he sells something for a ZJ, it's the right part for a ZJ.

I think that bottom one might be the steering damper.

It doesn't look correct for the damper...which I just replaced. I was really wondering why the 8 parts? Doesn't make sense

Somewhat...lol. The non-upcountry shocks appear to fit a stock ZJ front and rear. I found the specs for the other rear shock, and it is about right for upcountry rear but who knows for sure. That bottom shock is a complete unknown. If you look at the shocks on rockauto it shows the two non-upcountry shocks fitting a ZJ. The 4 OSC shocks can be had for less then $80 (add shipping of course).

If you are looking for a stock ride, just go with the KYB Excel-G shocks. They cost more but there is a rebate. They will fit and ride like stock.

Any point in moving up to the KYB gas-a-just?

They will surely be firmer. Comes down to what kind of ride you are looking for. I've used the ExcelG in another vehicle, a pickup truck, and the ride is soft and cushy, very stock-like. Nice for commuting, but not a performance shock.

If you want a great performing shock, I suggest the Bilstein 4600 series. Their high pressure monotube design will give you excellent handling, ride quality/control, fade resistance and rapid responsiveness. They have a lifetime warranty too.

PM me or email me at kolak@aol.com for pricing. I have Bilsteins on special for the Summer
