Cons: Harsh ride (but what do you expect)

Price: $160.00
Pros: Nice looking Improved ride
Cons: 1 in and 3/8 shorted than OEM shock. Boots for front shocks came a few inches short One of the mounts did not fit and had to be altered.
Recommended? No

Comments: Good price from 4WD. BUT, they would hear my issues and said I need to return them... But then they say I can return shocks that have been installed!
The front shocks are 1 3/8 inch shorter than the OEM shock. SkyJacker confirmed this after several e-mails. The front shocks I received from 4WD the boot was to short to fit. Took several e-mails to Skyjacker and then they would only respond after I posted issues directly to Facebook.

I like the shocks I guess, ride is OK. But because of the lack of responding from both 4wd AND Skyjacker, I will go elsewhere next time.

Pros: At $40 per corner, Great value, noticeable ride improvement over the old pro-comps that were on my YJ.
Cons: None so far
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Have not wheeled with these yet but on road they definitely make the ride less bouncy than before. I like them so far and what a smoking price at 4wheelparts.

Price: $160.00
Pros: Love the ride quality. Definitely better than OEM by far lol.
Cons: Wish I would have known to use the original sleeves do to rattling lol.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: My ride quality before was bouncy. It I could feel every bump to a "T". I went online and bought these shocks, and other than the rattling noise do to not doing more research, Its a smooth ride. Might as well have a Cadillac badge. Almost too smooth to be called a Jeep

Price: $43.00
Pros: Firm Ride
Cons: Made in Mexico
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Replaced a set of 5 year old Rusty's hydro shocks. I added rear upper BPE's so I ordered the stock length shock. Installation took 30 minutes. I opted to leave off the boot and stickers.

The ride is superb. Firm, but not rigid. I don't bottom out going over speed humps. I plan to replace the fronts with Nitro's.

The only down side is made in Mexico. The Rusty's shocks were made in the US.
