Front air shocks swap??
Does anyone know a part number for an air shock that will bolt right on the front of a 97 Wrangler? I know I've seen it done, and have tried to cross referance shock numbers, but I haven't had any luck.
You really are not supposed to use them on the front. I recommend (and use myself) air bags in the front coils for when I plow with my Jeep. AirLift part #80702 fit perfectly in the front TJ coils and run about $80 shipped. You can set the bump stop length so that the airlift bags only get used when you load up the suspension. An airshock can affect ride quality much more.... But - if you insist - i copied these directions from a guy on a plow site that I have bantered over the years with on the airbag vs airshock debate. He swears by the air shocks. His spelling and grammar are pretty lousy - but he at least knows his stuff on the air shocks....
I also run a Snowbear plow in the winter. I thought the shocks might be a cheaper way. The price for those Air lift bags seem very resonable. I think i might look into that method. I have seem the shock formula on the plowsite before, but I think I might do the bags.
