PRODUCT OVERVIEW

Skyjacker Softride Hydro Shocks feature Hydraulic action, multi-stage velocity sensitive valving, 5/8 diameter hardened double chrome rod, internal rebound bumper, oversize piston head, tough polyurethane bushings, variable resistance, and expanded fluid reservoir to help maintain consistent performance with less foaming and heavy-duty twin tube construction. Front shock for 1-3 of suspension lift. Shock extended measures 22.75" and compressed 13.54". This is the shock we recommend with most of our kits. It gives a great street ride and still is firm enough for most off-roading. *Shocks are sold individually.

Pretty stiff for a mostly stock Jeep

I put these on hoping all the comments about them being soft were correct. They were not. :( It's possible Skyjacker re-valved them to be stiffer at some point due to "too soft" complaints, as there's no way someone could thing these are soft. My LJ is mostly stock, with a 1-2" lift. It weighs about 4100 lbs without me in it. These shocks are really stiff. I was unhappy with OME Nitrocharger Sport shocks for the same reason. These shocks are softer than the OME's on compression, but at least as stiff, if not stiffer on rebound. So the ride is about the same. :( I want the suspension to WORK when I'm offroad, and instead these stiff shocks force the body to follow the axle and beat the wee out of you. Pretty typical for aftermarket shocks, really. If your jeep is loaded down with 500+ lbs of bumpers/skids/armor/junk then these might ride a little better, but they should NOT be advertised as softride shocks IMO. I REALLY REALLY REALLY want a set of old OME Nitrochargers with the "comfort" valving. Those were great shocks!!!

Asked by wally from campobello sc on

Hi Wally Yes the Softride Hydro Shock H7016 will work on the front. You would need H7023 for the rear. Thanks

Answered by LWiff ext 4804 from campobello sc on

I'm here trying to gather information being that I am new to Jeeps. Is this product just for offroad use? I have a 99wj Grand Cherokee Laredo V6

Asked by ViperousWaif from Springfield, MA on

Hey ViperousWaif, the Skyjacker Softride Hydro Shock Absorber will be more of a on road shock but can be used offroad also. Thanks for your question.

Answered by Devin B. ext 4835 from Springfield, MA on

I plan on lifting my '04 WJ about 3". Will these fit? If not, what length shock should I look for?

Asked by Corey from on

Corey, the Skyjacker Softride Hydro Shock Absorber is for the front of a WJ with a 3" lift. The rear part number you would be looking at is H7023. I hope this helps!
