New Struts For Front End

Anyone know of a company that makes heavy duty struts for the XK? Looking to replace the stock struts on my front end with something a bit more beefy.

the only replacements I've been able to find online are the Monroe (sensa-trac?) - I put Monroe shocks on my Cherokee and they are a bit stiffer than stock...don't know about their struts.

Hmmm......it would appears the front bilsteins went up in price. They were originally the same price as the rears when I first check them out at shockwarehouse.com

Just ordered Bilsteins all around for mine as well. Shock Warehouse has them on sale and had an additional 5% off last week when ordered. Question for those that have them-I am on the fence about Rusty/related lift with the shocks. I put the bilsteins on my toyota truck and it lifted it about an inch, just enough to take some of the dork out of it. WOndering whether I need the lift with the use of Bilsteins, just to clean up the look and essentially "level" the Commander.

Go longer springs instead of spacers - the Bilsteins are longer travel than stock and you'll improve your articulation as well as your ride. Mine are Dobinsons and they are a great match for the Bilsteins.

Can you tell me where you got your springs and shocks from, cost and part numbers?

Thanks.
