All four of your vehicle’s wheels—lifted or stock—could use the sky-high handling and smoothness of Skyjacker Nitro 8000 Shocks. They’re highly-charged with 150psi of nitrogen gas for a smooth, consistent ride that adjusts to road conditions.

Skyjacker Nitro 8000 Shocks boast multi-stage velocity-sensitive valving that changes shock performance to speed and road conditions. Further fortifying Skyjacker Shocks’ strength and smoothness is their twin tube construction, along with heavy-duty 14mm rods.

Skyjacker Nitro 8000 Shocks come in front and rear sets, as well as sizes that accommodate most any level of lifting. Long-lasting red polyurethane bushings and boots are included with every shock. And, all you have to do to get the right shocks is select your vehicle above. What’s even better, your Skyjacker Nitro 8000 Shocks carry a Lifetime Warranty.

Price: $38.00
Pros: They're cheap.
Cons: You get what you pay for. Twin tube=the suck
Recommended? No

Comments: These are a decent shock at a good price. I think they ride a little stiff, and for that reason if I where to do it over would probably buy Hydros.

Update 9/24/09:
Oh man do these shocks suck. They've already started to rust out, and I swear they're even stiffer then when they were new. As soon as I can afford it I'll be replacing these with some good monotubes.

Update 10/14/10:
All 4 of my shocks are completely blown. My suspension has always been properly bumpstopped, so that's not the reason. These are just terrible shocks.

I'm going to bilsteins as soon as money allows.

Update 4/4/12
Put Bilstein 5125s in the rear and OME nitro sports in the front and the difference is night and day. I will never buy cheap shocks again.

Skyjacker shocks suck!

Skyjacker Skyjacker Nitro 8000
Price: $34.00
Pros: nice boots, fit the WJ well
Cons: really hard at first and caused bump steer
Recommended? No

Comments: Installed Feb 06 need to be replaced Aug 06.
After install I had a lot of bump steer. Got better after a month. After 6 months they are done. Paid $34 each. They installed very easily. On my WJ with 265/70/17's on the stock 17" wheels and stock back spacing they leave less than one half inch clearance. They have rubbed the inside of the tire a bit but not really an issue.
