On a 2007+ Wrangler Unlimited, how do the Bilstein HDs compare to the stock Rubicon shocks? What's the difference in ride and handling between them?
I have a 2009 Rubicon Unlimited with about 34k miles on it and the stock shocks are getting soft. I don't plan to lift it, and it's driven on the street 90% of the time. When new, I liked the ride/handling combination. I wouldn't mind a little bit stiffer, but I wouldn't like a lot stiffer, so I'm trying to figure out if I'd be happy with the Bilsteins.
I've done a bit of searching on this, but I haven't really been able to find a direct answer. Some people say the Bilsteins are stiff, others say they ride great, but that's with all kinds of different suspensions and Jeeps.
