New shocks?

My liberty seams to be a little low in the front and very bouncy when driving over bumps. Could I need new shocks or would it mostly be the springs. 95,000 miles on it

Both are worn.Shocks control the ride and the coils set the ride height.In no way does shocks increase the vehicles ride height.Worn shocks also directly effects braking.

So any good deals on front shocks and springs? I want stock height and something that won't break the bank. Rear shocks were changed about 10,000 miles ago. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

Where is the good deal on Bilstein's? I am lightly shopping for suspension stuff for mine.. I didn't see any links or mention of a vendor in your post.

I bought mine from Jason at Krawl Offroad. Not sure if he is on here, but he is on the "wrangler forum". Good luck. I love my bilstein 5100s!

Monroe makes "quick struts" (though they are coilover assembly's) with new coils and shocks already assembled for the front so swapping out is a 30min job per side.Pretty good prices also.
