shocks for KJ

Bilstein, KYB, Monroe-which shocks do you guys have, and which are pretty much the best?

Running OME's (Old Man Emu) Aussie brand on this one - but there has been good things mentioned on the Bilstein ones as well. Would skip right over the Monroe brand. JMPO

I would venture that your coils are getting pretty soft on your CRD as well. May want to change them out at the same time.

I had the Blisten's on the KJ before and my local shop suggested Fox shocks when I needed to replace.
I was a bit hesitant at first b/c of the $ and because I thought they were more for "racing" and such...but I have been really impressed with how they compliment the suspension on a KJ. The Fox shocks have made a noticeable difference in ride quality.

However, I have OME's on my TJ and love them.
