Shock absorber question for 89 Grand Wagoneer

Time for a set of new shock absorbers for my 89 Grand Wagoneer.

I came accross Skyjacker Nitro 8000.

How is this brand?

Is there a better alternative such as Bilsteins or?

In other words what is the best handling/softest shock absorber for 89 Grand Wagoneer?

Thanks.
Max

Bilstein or Doetsch Tech

Skyjackers are way stiff in my experience, especially the Nitro line.

Not knowing your location makes it tough, but I'm sure that Bilstein's website probably has a dealer locator if you don't go through BJ's.

If you want the correct ones, I highly suggest BJ's since they are FSJ specific! (and even drive their own!) I prefer an adjustable valving shock myself. That way I can make them work off road differently than on-road in just minutes.
