Only shocks that'll bolt right up ARE superlift shocks. We are talking about the 98+ 4" superlift suspension system right?

I was toying with the idea of running Bilstein 5100's that are the proper specs, except the top mount. I'd run an eye to eye shock. I'd press in the lower bracket from the old shocks into the new shocks, then up top run a jeep shock conversion. BUt I've since decided on coil-overs.

The Fox shocks linked above are nice but if you are going to go to that expense I would just convert to coilovers.

I don't keep replacing shocks.....I bought my kit used.....crap shocks on it....I ran the crap used up ones til I found a set of lightly used brand new ones. I've since put about 30k on 'em and the shocks are still in 'good' shape. Im gonna rock 'em til I get coil-overs.
