Thread: Which shock are you running?

  1. #1

    Default Which shock are you running?

    I did the lift with Rough Country. Went with the 4" lift. I opted for the 2.2 shocks (their upgrade from the hydro 8000's) but am wondering if I should have went with the Nitro 9000's. 2.2 are a hydraulic shock and the 9000's are nitro charged (200psi). What are you guys running on your Jeeps. Hydraulic or nitro charged?

    Thanks

    BDS hydro shocks. Work well with the 3.5" BDS lift I have but I'm going with FOA shocks. My friend has them on the exact same setup and it's night and day difference. You really do get what you pay for in the shock department.

    Although I'm not a big fan of pro-comp stuff... I do have their MX6 adj. shocks. I honestly really like them. Its nice to have 'em soft for the road, then, firm them up for the rocks... works nice!
