Mine has FOA rear and Sway A Way race runners in frt. There are tons of variables in shocks. How/where/how hard do you drive? Otherwise stock suspension? Budget?

Here is the standard, although stiff frt: www.chircoestore.com/c...ts_id=1095

Matching rear: www.chircoestore.com/c...ts_id=1153

If lifted and the budget is better: www.chircoestore.com/c...ts_id=1153

And goes up from there...

i drive the trails in parker, az so mostly hard packed dirt and alot of rocks. i have long rancho shocks in the rear but stock in the front. as far as budget goes, i dont want to drop all my cash on overkill shocks, but i have enough for a decent pair. the front has adjusters in the beam which are cranked up nearly all the way. gonna back them down a bit when i get back there.

For a lifted ball joint, the bilstein class 11 shock would be your best bet.
