    Going to be replacing the rear shocks with Bilstein 5100s and this will be the biggest job I will do on my Jeep! What tools do I need and what should I look out for? I have WD40 and some basic household hand tools. :smile2:

  7. Jeep CJ Forum
    Got a 78 CJ-7 over 20 years ago. Never replaced springs or shocks. Very rough ride. Didn't notice it bothering me for years, but now, if I ride 30 min in the Jeep on the highway, my lower back, just above the hip, has a really sharp pain on the right side, over the lead foot. There's no give...

    (Coincidentally, that was also my nickname in high-school...) I realize now that I am considering a Budget Boost pretty much solely so I can stick in some Bilstein 5100s in (-- I'm more often on hwy and occasional dirt roads with heavy load than "offroading"). I'm probably NOT going to even be...

    I've been having a loud popping noise in the front right and left side whenever i'm braking in reverse, and sometimes normal braking. Doesn't do it while i turn and its more of a noise compared to a bad u-joint. i had a u-joint go out on me before so i know what that feels like but this is...

    I've noticed something's wrong with my right front suspension lately and it's getting worse. I go on trails with my jeep, nothing special, just a little trail next to some train tracks close to where I live. There's bumps and humps, you know, everything that makes a trail. If I go just fast...

    I need to replace the upper shock bushings on the rear shocks (09 JK). Does anyone know of a good aftermarket source, or am I stuck going to the dealership? I searched around on a few different Jeep/Mopar sites with no luck. Thanks in advance.

    Here is a list I made when I was picking out shocks for my home brew lift. Putting it down on paper really helped me pick the right shocks for me so I hope it can help some one else. I used air shocks front and rear, mostly because of cost and so I could level the back easily. But I listed...

  20. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    I have done tons of work with my suspension and others, but have never used anything besides a standard $35 shock absorber (BDS, DT3000, Rancho, etc). I'm at a point where I would like to upgrade to a major improvement over what I have- which is currently the $37 BDS shocks. Assuming coilovers...
