Shocks

I've got an 02 edge, spindle lifted in the front (torsions maxed out also), shackles/aal's in the rear.

I need new shocks all the way around.

Pretty much looking for some mid end stuff, bilstien/rancho is good for me.


I want the shock to be a little bit longer in the front (b/c of the torsion crank, and I will run limit straps also) and I'd actually like a longer extended length. I'm just having a heck of a time finding shocks.

I need limit straps also...I need all the room I can get to fit my tires.




Summit part #'s would be highly appreciated




Thanks in advance!!!

try a set of Monroe reflex "monotube" units, you wont be dissapointed, the fronts are .5" longer in the front and the rears will suport up to a 2" lift. there about 50 bucks each

will do...

can I use the jeep ones? i'm kinda confused on what years fit/what don't.

I know another member used the jeep ones and he got a little downward flex out of them, but he needs limit straps (which i will get)

also I'm at 4" of lift in the rear...actually 4.5 measured (still on same tires too)

find the compression length and extension length for stock and then you can get the longer lengths needed.

summit has that info built into the universal procomp and skyjacker shocks.

you can not get the reflex in monotube for a jeep last i knew, order them for a FX4 level II and your golden.

this i can tell you, i will never run any "twin tube" shock again!

cool, sounds good, I'm probably going to get a 2" longer compressed in the front, and at least 4" longer for the rear...

stock summit says

front- collapsed 13.75, extended 18.25
rear- collapsed 16, extended 26.25

i'm still having trouble with finding them, i'm just getting confused.

I know I could use stock jeep ones for the front, i just can't find the right ones.

if you go with longer in the front you will need straps and to be honest the front will not droop much past the stock extended possestion, i have been through this.

and jyst a FYI the suspension droop bump stop is built into the shock, jeeps are not.

and the jeep shocks will be for a late 90ish cherokee

So if I get say the 5100 bilstiens or the rancho es9000's, the bump stop will be built in?

I am definetly taking your advice, I just want a good shock, I'll prolly go with that monotube...

if there for a 4x4 ranger then yes, ES9000 are adjustable arnt they, there not monotube units.
i have had 3 sets of aftermarket shocks on my truck and the reflex monotubes are the best.

They are for 2-3" of lift.
