Rear shock for 1-3" of suspension lift. Shock extended measures 22.58" and compressed 13.71". 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-roaming. Skyjacker Softride Hydro Shocks feature Hydraulic action, multi-stage velocity sensitive valving, 5/8 inch 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. Shocks are sold individually.
I have a 2000 TJ with 115000 that had what were probably the original shocks. They were all a leaky mess. I replaced the fronts with Skyjackers last year. Loved them. Huge improvement. This year I did the rear. If you've ever changed old shocks out on the rear of a TJ you know the awful pain of broken shock bolts. But I thought it would be worth it for the new Skyjackers. Totally wrong. These are WORSE than the old shocks with 115000 miles on them. A bumpy road (slow) will make you seasick. Literally, no exaggeration. I admit that at highway speeds they seem to work beautifully, but if you are going 0 to 35 on a torn up road or rough trail you are in for some serious up and down. Since my TJ is a daily, around town work vehicle and an occasional trail runner I am hugely disappointed in my choice of these shocks.
I bought these shocks to replace some very stiff Rough Country 2.2 shocks. The RCs were so stiff that if I hit a series of bumps on a dirt road,you would loose all the fillings out of you teeth. So for my recreation use Jeep Tj I needed to soften things up a bit. The Skyjacker Hydros are much better, softer but not too soft to street daily. Very satisfied.
