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.
05 TJ RME 42RLE with some things
05 KJ CRD 545RFE, GDE Eco tune, Franky II, Al's 4.5 A-arms, JK Rubi Moabs, Silent Armors 245-70-17's, Spidertrax Adapters, Rola Basket, Fumoto Valve, Pinch welds pounded

FS or FT (2) JK Rubi 17" Moab Rims - really nice shape
Need JK Rear Spare tire bracket for project

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.
