These shocks installed with 1.75" coil daystar spacer greatly improved my highway ride. Off road they reduced the sudden jolts and hard hits.

Good shocks, good travel and dampening. You pay for what you get, and I have been very satisfied

Love Rancho products. Recommend them to everyone. I replaced all four shocks with these.

No problems. Feel good. Easy install. Starting to rust a little. I think I am going with OME next time.

Nice set of shocks, Just got the jeep so i don't really have much to say about them. So far, they have done their job. I guess as far as i'm concerned, theyre shocks...

I guess these are good they came with the jeep. come to think of it I should have replaced them when I tore it down. oh well they're under there. the jeep rides really rough but its a 34 year old CJ

These were replacements for Monroe Sensatrack OEM replacements. They are not as compliant nor as plush as the Monroe's, but I didn't expect that. They are an excellent deal for the price, easy to find, they have sizes for nearly any lift combination and are available anywhere.

All in all after 2 months I am happy with the performance for the price paid, a fair deal. Next time I will likely opt for something a little more polished all around with better road manners.
