    Default Best shocks under $600?

    Im looking to buy and install new shocks for under $600 for road and off-road use. The off-roading is just florida trails, nothing major but looking for a comfy ride for both. Can i get some recomendations, please? Thanks!

    Recommend you get some Rubicon take-offs.

    I agree with this and it is what I did. I got essentially new set of Rubi shocks for $80. Was a nice upgrade to my Sport shocks that had 90,000 miles on them. The paint absolutely sucks on some Rubi shocks. Before I installed them in my Jeep I cleaned, buffed, primed and painted them red with a high quality paint.

    I second this, the adjustability is night and day.



    Plus...Rubicon shocks suck. Get a real upgrade

    Rubicon shocks??? Really? lol

    We have a deal on Rancho RS9000s and as others have said those are a killer adjustable option that fall well under your budget.

    Rancho RS9000XL Package Deal

    Another great option would be Bilstein 5100s or Falcon 2.1s. The package deals are the best price we can do, but the Falcons will show an automatic discount when you add them to your cart.

    Yeah, don't bother with the Rubicon ones. I did that my first time around and it was a waist. You wanna spend $600, there is no reason you can't get something better.

    The Rancho's sound good to me! I run Fox 2.0's that came with my lift and I have no complaints. People also like Bilsteins.

    Also, install these yourself and save hundreds on an easy DIY task.
