    '99 Grand Cherokee Shocks. KYB or Monroe

    Hey everyone. New to the forum and have a question. I'm looking to replace the stock suspension on my wife's Jeep. It's a 1999 Grand Cherokee Limited with the 4.0 6 cyl. I would like to upgrade a little, but don't want to spend a whole lot. I've been looking at either KYB or Monroe shocks. Which one do you prefer? Any other brands that are good?
    Thanks for the help.

    I have monroe sensatracs on my ZJ, they aren't great, a lot better than the shot stock shocks I had before. Wow that's a mouthful, shot stock shocks.

    KYB are okay, but I don't think they're as good as the stock shocks were new. Shot shocks, well, anything will be better. KYB will do, but don't expect them to be fantastic. I guess it depends on what model you get though. I think mine are a sport type, probably tuned for more rugged uses, and thus a little rougher.

    Between those two, KYB hands down.

    I currently run a set of KYB Monomax (monotubes) on my lifted Suburban DD and they are very nice.
    I recall running a set of Monroe Sensatracs on my Blazer some years ago and they were fine for the street driving that vehicle saw.

    I would definitely get the KYBs again though.

    I have the Bilsteins on my '99 Dub and just about every single person that goes for a ride, on road and especially off, comments on how great it rides. There a bit more dough than some of the others, but they're wonderful.
