Soft shocks:Rubicon Express Monotube or Skyjacker Hydros?
Which shocks give a softer ride, RE Monotubes or Skyjacker Hydros? I assume that the RE Monotubes are of higher quality but the Sky Hydros are half the money. I know that most of you like the Old Man Emu but I do not personally like the style. I like the rubber boots - just my preference.
I run the hydros. Seem to be decent shocks, especially for the price. I run them on a 4.5 Rubicon Express LA. The jeep rides and handles great overall. very controlled but somewhat firm. I think the majority of that is due to the high spring rate of the RE 4.5 coils combined with the relative light weight of my jeep though.
