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. Softride Hydro Shocks are covered with a heavy mileage white paint that provides a minimum 240-salt protection. This is the shock that we recommend with most of our kits. It gives a great street ride, but is still firm enough for most off-roading. Shocks include red polyurethane bushings and a red boot. Can be used front or rear. Note: These shocks are for suspension lift kits only. Shocks will not life vehicle. Applications: 1982-86 CJ as a rear shock with no lift, 1955-75 CJ as a front or rear shock with 2" lift, 1976-86 CJ as a rear shock with 2" lift, 1976-86 CJ as a front shock with 4" lift, 1987-95 YJ as a rear shock with 2" lift and 1999-02 WJ as a rear shock with 2" lift. *Shocks are sold individually.
The shocks made a big difference in ride and handling. The old shocks were almost like rigid struts. Haven't had a chance yet to use them off road yet, but I think they will do much better than the old shocks did.

Installed these in combination with replacement springs on an 85 CJ7.
The combo has greatly improved the ride.
I decided to stick with hydros instead of gas because the vehicle is so light. I am pleased with the decision.
I've only been running these for about 1k miles so I can't comment on their durability. However, so far so good.

Worked out well, jut make sure you specify if your truck is stock or lifted.

Skyjacker Hydro Series Shocks
They're ok.....for the money not bad. Probably on par with the Rancho 5000 but with urethane bushings.

Good product for price
Used the shocks for a restoration of a CJ7 Jeep with 5.5" over the axle lift.
Will these work on an 02 grand cherokee with a 2" lift

Thanks Todd for the inquiry, the Skyjacker Softride Hydro Shock Absorber shocks for your application according to your truck should measure 28 inch extended on the front and 32 inch extended on the rear.
