I had a rear shock go out at about 30K miles...The stock ones must be crap. You should just replace them with bilsteins or another aftermarket one.

No more jeeps for me... I get around by bicycle now.

bought this one used with 23k. Only drove it 200 miles.

This is what needs to be replaced: will take 7 days.
1. Rear shocks
2. side bearings
3. drive pinion
4.pinion bearing front and rear.

warranty will cover it, but concerned that I bought a lemon.
