All in all, I'm very happy with the RSX shocks. For a daily driver they are very well mannered. They have a lot more flex than the Rubicon factory shocks and feel very good on the street as well. They may be a little firm for some, but I like them. Ron

A firm ride on the road and it seems like they have enough dampening for moderate trails

Create a bit of a harsh ride but that's probably because the Jeep has 16 of them. Shocks were painted to match Jeep exterior and boots dyed to match interior

the jeep seems to ride better than stock with these shocks. before these shocks, the jeep was aweful to ride in and would beat me to death.

They are my first set of after market shocks. An improvement over my stock shocks. They ride stiff.
