Quadratec Maximum Duty Nitro 8.0 Shock Kit Reviews
Mine 5-6" option took around a month to arrive on backorder, but were still worth the wait. Performance is good and articulation capability is great! One recommendation I have during installation is to shave down the bushing inserts slightly before putting them together. This will prevent the insert from curling while it scrapes against the bracket during shock installation. Your shock mounts are likely not perfectly straight especially if you wheel with them.
I installed these in two parts, front first (in Chicago, it was too darn cold for the whole job) then the rear a month later.
Just installing the front made little difference. Then I did the rear. 3 of my 4 shocks were absolute toast. The 4th was on its way out.
Having all 4 shocks replaced transformed my YJ. The carnival ride feel is gone. The Jeep handles bumps very well. I'm impressed.
I highly recommend these shocks.
Quick note: you need to install the bushings, so having a vice on hand makes quick work of it. And at least on my YJ, the rear top mounts do not require the metal bushing insert. So push it out, clean up the top shock mounts, and squeeze it on.
This part, at least for me on the passenger's side, was not easy.
I had to use a large socket to connect with the shock body, with a smaller socket inside the larger socket, to connect with the bushing. This makeshift tool, and a few whacks from a BFH, pushed the shock right on.
Easy to install. Everything needed for install was included. Ride is firm but good. Top bushing on rear shocks did not take the metal insert, the frame mounted stem on my 1993 Wrangler S was too wide so only rubber would fit. Everything else as expected.
