i have a similar setup as you

Bilstein and don't look back.

Previously I paid little to no attention on shock quality... just got the cheapest. (rancho, pro-comp, trailmaster, etc.)

Night and day performance when I went with the higher quality shock.

Well that’s cool

5150’s seem the have a good vote?

Another vote was the FRO shocks that are rebuildable. Any thought? $150 a corner.

I am trying to redo this suspension very low and stable. Small up travel lots of drop. 4 and 10 maybe?? That ok out of the front.

And than later back half the jeep and run air shocks. That’s my thoughts.

I just stretched the front 3 inch's by re-dilling my leaf pack. Adding an extra leaf and redoing my shackles. Running 101wheel base.

Last time in Moab I had tons of front wheel hope. I want to eliminate that. And have a jeep that can take a little air with out shaking itself apart.

To get rid of the wheel hop I would build a front traction bar.

I ran Fox on my CJ. They are easy to find used and can be rebuilt and revalved.
