stock shock replacement

my 2000 Wrangler Sport has 62K miles on it and the suspension is sloppy and only getting sloppier. I just replaced the steering dampener but now the shocks are in need of attention.

Just lightly stepping on the rear bumper results in the suspension compressing and bouncing more than necessary. I'm looking for a high quality stock replacement for my shocks....

the car has been very scary to drive in the recent bad weather (rain and freezing conditions) so hopefully this will cure the problem...

what are you guys using when you want to keep your stock ride height and get better than stock parts.

If you're looking for quality try Bilstein shocks.

The Bils replacement shocks (they are yellow and blue, called HD I believe) are by far one of the best stock replacements you can buy.

If you plan on staying stock for a while try some Monroe's, Sensatrac or Reflex. Had them(sensatrac) on my 98 XJ and 88 MJ, rode great on the MJ expecially with a few pounds in the bed.

I agree. If 2 versions are offered, the HD will be significantly "stiffer" than the non-HD version. I found that out on my GMC Sierra. I contacted Bilstein and they told me they had a "ride guarentee" on their shocks. If you do not like the ride after 60 days (I think that is the number, contact them to make sure), you can send them back to Bilstein and they will re-valve your shocks. Nice to have this offer, but if you don;t have the old ones to put on, your vehicle will sit while you wait for the shocks to come back.
