    Sizing. Skyjacker's Softride hydraulic front shock is ready to hit the trails with your lifted TJ. This shock's heavy duty, twin-tube construction can take repeated punishment from whatever the trail throws at you. The large fluid reservoir reduces the risk of foaming to keep this shock delivering consistent and superior performance for years to come.

    Properties. You've gone through the expense of lifting your Jeep, and Skyjacker wants to make sure you get the best performance. This hydraulic shock can automatically adjust to changes in the terrain or pavement without missing a beat. The multi-stage velocity sensitive valving gives you excellent articulation on the trail as well as a smooth ride home. The twin-tube body, 5/8 hardened double chrome rod, internal rebound bumper, and oversized piston head are beyond tough, so this shock can keep pace even with your rugged Jeep.

    Notable Features. Skyjacker's iconic red polyurethane bushings add to this shock's responsiveness while providing a nice visual accent to your setup. The matching polyurethane boots protect the shock rod from grime and dust. Other off-roaders won't think twice about your rig's off-road abilities when they see Skyjacker's logo against the shock's white finish.

    Application. Fits 1997 - 2006 TJ Wranglers with a 1 to 3 inch lift system.

        Skyjacker softride hydro front shock We have a 2002 Jeep wrangler TJ with a 3" lift. Our front shock has a bushing on the bottom and a threaded rod on the top. Your picture of the front Skyjacker softride hydro shock shows a bushing on both ends. I don't understand? Please explain!!!

        • The images for the SkyJacker Softride Hydro Front Shock for 1-3 in. Lift (97-06 Wrangler TJ) is for representation purposes. The unit itself is the proper design for a bolt on application.

        Skyjacker shocks We have a 3" Terra Flex lift on our 2002 Wrangler and we do very little off roading, mainly highway. Will the Skyjacker Softride shock work for us?

        • I have skyjacker shocks they seem to ride real good and are better than stock. If the shocks are for the lift height that you have then they should work fine.

            Replacement Bolts?

            It would have been real nice if replacement bolts were included.

            Just what I was looking for

            I was looking to replace my factory shocks with 125k miles on them, and hoping to get a similar ride quality. I also lifted the Jeep 1.5" in the front and 1.25" in the rear. They were a bit bouncy at first, but after a couple hundred miles they have settled in and I am very happy.

            Awesome price, performs exceptional

            I would say I have slightly above average mechanical ability and these we super easy to install, look great and perform beyond expectations. You really can go wrong here, would definitely recommend.

            Good shock good price.

            These shocks were beefier than expected. Doing a nice job on my 98 Wrangler. Correct fit, look good.

            This product looks and improves ride quality

            Order these because the shocks i had before made my jeep ride very stiff. I bought these hoping to improve that and they did. Not as soft as i was hoping but i blame my jeep for that. Definitely improved my ride quality. Plus they look fantastic.
