Definitely leaning that way at least. It's going to be either Bilstein or Monroe, depends which will meet my needs and my pockets needs, while providing good ride quality and on road manners. The off-roading I'll do will be minimal at best. If the Bilstein is overkill for my daily driving, and more expensive, I may go th Monroe. I know one is mono and the other is twin tube, but I don't know if I'd notice the difference. I want a firm, taught ride that's not too harsh and looks killer. The rest are just details haha.
My setup with 5100's is certainly firm and taut, and not harsh. MOOG poly sway bar bushings and end links (my XK has factory 'SRT8' swaybar) helped also. Probably a good JY upgrade if your into that.

That being said there are Plenty of people satisfied with Monroe shocks, and a new shock vs your worn out stockers would still be an improvement. Check rockauto for those...
