Product Information

MSRP: $228.00
Average Price: $95.21
Manufacturer: Skyjacker
Recommended?
Yes: 29 / No: 1

Rear shock for 1-3" of suspension lift. Shock extended measures 22.58" and compressed 13.71". This is the shock we recommend with most of our kits. It gives a great street ride and still is firm enough for most off-roaming. Skyjacker Softride Hydro Shocks feature Hydraulic action, multi-stage velocity sensitive valving, 5/8" diameter hardened double chrome rod, internal rebound bumper, oversize piston head, tough polyurethane bushings, variable resistance, and expanded fluid reservoir to help maintain consistent performance with less foaming and heavy-duty twin tube construction.

Price: $75.00
Pros: Easy Install
Cons: Too soft
Recommended? No

Comments: Too soft for a 2 inch lifted TJ. I wheel hop pretty badly because of these shocks. The stocks shocks are much stiffer. These are too soft to off road with. I went with Blistein 5100 and the ride is much better, no wheel hop and still soft enough for a daily driver. Can't recommend these shocks.

Comments: I really like these shocks, especially for the price.

I had DT3000's before, hated them, way too stiff for onroad use.
