I'm finally getting around to replacing my shocks, one started leaking real bad and i'm starting to get the "bouncies". I remember reading somewhere, something like, that if the shocks were blue with blue boots, then it was the up country suspension? If so, what replacements would I get that give me at least stock ride(if not a little better). I don't want to run down to auto parts store and have them hand me Monroe's that are harsh or too soft, but I'm also unwilling to spend $100 per shock on Old man emu's or Edelbrock's. Are the Trailmaster's any good? I've used Bilsteins' and Procomp's on sports cars but don't know all that much about off road shocks. I'm definitely more of a engine/drivetrain mechanic than suspension. Rolling Eyes

The OME's run about $75each (roughly). Bilsteins are just a little cheaper (depending on the style). And that is Quadratec pricing. I'm sure you could find them cheaper. Wink

I run the OME's on both the TJ and XJ and couldn't be happier both on/off road.
