Shocks For 400 More

We have shock sets for as cheap as $167. Our shock kits include 4 shocks; not 2. ;)


The reason our kit's don't include shocks is simply due to the fact customer's are picky. We figured we'd let them decide on what they wanted instead of us throwing in a "cheap" set and the customer wanting a nicer set. It's easier to just not include them and let the customer choose what they want. 8)

go with motion , Rustys kit is garbage Trust me I bought it and the hole kit just sucks . MY MJ leans to the front DS and the rear springs won't hold any real weight should you decide to use the MJ as a truck.

with a comanche, a transfercase drop especially at a 4.5" lift is ridiculous to even consider. there is no need. also if you don't drop the t-case, you don't need to pitch the angle of the axle pinion up as the degree of function doesn't change.


if you experience any vibes at that lift from your rear driveshaft, get a YJ slip-yoke, or do the next upgrade (best option) with a slip-yoke-eliminator.


motion offroad. $$$ well spent.

Definitely Motion. I have never heard much good about the Rusty's lift kits from anyone. I have two friends that have used them and were completely disappointed, not to mention pissed off, with the results. ;)

I have bought stuff from both companies. Rusty's customer service sucks, and his shipping times are at best variable. On the other hand Adam (motion Offroad) took the time with me to figure out what I wanted. Then he looked up the kit, and it said it wasnt for compatable with my trans... so while on the phone tape measures on both ends, we figued out what had to be done to make it work. Try getting that kind of service from Rusty's.
