Good Shocks for a 3" Superlift and 1" body lift?

I need new shocks pretty badly, but I don't know anything about them. It's a 98 TJ and the shocks on it now are Rancho. Like the title says, it has a 3" lift with a 1" body lift.

This jeep is used primarily as a daily driver for me to take to school and coach my t-ball team. So I don't need top of the line off-road shocks. I just need a good quality shock that will fit on this lift.

I have 33" BFGoodrich's also, if that is factored in anywhere.

I also need a new steering stabilizer.

Thanks for the tips!

Call RC and get 2.2 shocks and a Hi-Perf stabilizer to match.

I drive on the right side, what's wrong with you?

Be very careful with the wife mod. Uninstallation can be extremely expensive. Wife mods have been known to take the Jeep and all other mods during the uninstall process. Also, make sure you service your wife mod properly as often as humanly possible. Wife mods not properly serviced may malfunction or uninstall themselves at any time.

RC shocks are good, Old man emu, the RE monotubes, BDS shocks. These are all pretty good brands and I don't think you could go wrong with any of them. For the steering stabilizer I would go with OME or the Rancho one.

ROFL... RC= Rough Country, yes? Lol... i've been searching "RC shocks" and have found nothing.


Rough country, however, pull up a lot. LMAO.


their 2.2 says it's available for 4" suspension lift. Does it work for a 3" suspension lift and 1" body lift?

well... at 200 bucks a pop, it doesn't really matter. Way too rich for a full-time college student's blood.

your BL does not effect the length of your shocks, you need them for a 3" lift
