Pros: cheap and they quite beefy. great ride
Cons: a little noisy on the trails
Recommended? Yes

Comments: i personally love these shocks. i have had them for about 2000 miles now and they have worn in perfectly. i have them matched up to a set of ome HD springs and my jeep thinks its my fiancÚs old caddy as far as ride quality. deffenitly an improvement over stock shocks i can tell you that much!

Price: $1.00
Pros: I got these shocks for free since they were on my rig when I first purchased it. These shocks rode great! They rode good and had good wheel travel. I'll give these shocks 4 of 5 stars. I've owned better shocks, but one of those shocks cost more than 4 of these..
Cons: The only con I have is that I gave them away when I purchased new Fox/Savvy shocks... Now I'm $500 into new shocks, and my Jeep rides even worse than it did with the Black Diamond shocks.
Recommended? No

Comments: I had these shocks on my rig when I first purchased it. My rig had an ok ride, but the springs would unseat at full droop and I wanted a spring that wouldn't do that. So I purchased Currie springs for all 4 corners, and Fox/Savvy shocks that were/are supposed to be tuned for the Currie springs. Well long story short: My rig now rides worse than it did before, and I'm out a whole bunch of money... I wish I would've stayed with my Black Diamond shocks...

Pros: part of "complete" suspension upgrade kit
Cons: missing ubolts in kit, minor annoyance
Recommended? Yes

Comments: came in kit with add a leaf and new springs. came without u-bolts so watch out for that. these shocks are a definitely improvement over stock, with a smoother ride, as smooth as it gets for a YJ

Price: $200.00
Pros: I love them. Went from the Rubicon Express shocks that come with the 2" coil spacer lift to these and I felt a difference instantly. 10x better ride.
Cons: None really. What to do with the dust boot that I won't use?
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Paid around 200 bucks. Worth it. Took the tank feeling out the TJ when hitting a bump.

Pros: Easy to install
Cons: Made in Mexico
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Haven't had too much experience with shocks, and I just replaced the old ones after buying my YJ. It seems like it took a few miles for them to break in but ride quality seemed to improve conciderably (for a YJ)

Price: $300.00
Pros: Work as promised
Cons: nadda
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Bought these to replace a new set of KYB mono-tubes. When it comes to shocks, bigger price does not equal better. I originally opted for mono-tube construction because of the off-road benefits, but if your jeep sees any blacktop at all they should be avoided. Mono-tubes are so stiff it actually made me jeep sit about an inch higher. I had to compress these with a floor jack and position them with pry bars. You will feel a dime if you drive over it. Stick with some decent quality twin tube shocks like black diamond. Twin tubes will take a little bit more of a beating and your back/butt will thank you. I ultimately chose these because I could remove the stock bar pin easily and the came with shock boots.

Pros: Thick meaty shoocks, included the black boots, not too hard and not too soft a good in the middle shocks.
Cons: No stickers?
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I had to wait 3 months to get these buggers but I love them. My old stock shocks were beat to hell and had pretty much given up on providing any resistance. The only thing that really pisses me off is there were no stickers! Not on the shocks, not in the box, I am the only person who can say beyond a shadow of a doubt that I'm running BD.

Comments: Nice but noticed they aren't as quiet as my gas shocks. They look tough on it as I have a rear bumper that allows me to show them off.

Black Diamond AT Shocks
Price: $142.00
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Inexpensive! Look s good but i dont think they ride as well as other shocks i've had. Took off Monroe Sensa-trac and put on B.D. shocks. I don't like a shock that doesn't expand to its full lenght on its own. Might go back to Monroes or maybe MX6's one day. But a good shock for the price.

Comments: Maybe a little on the soft side, will give you more of a stock ride, not as harsh as Bilsteins. The price is right though.
