My 06 Commander's shocks have never been replaced and I have been noticing some ride issues. I also have been towing my new camper and noticed some fairly significant bouncing coming from the rear end. I figured while I was replacing the shocks/struts I might as well see if I can help my tow bounce. I have been reading through these forums and most of what I am finding is relating to lifts. I am not looking to lift my jeep but I am not against it either. Bottom line what are my options for front and rear shocks/struts with load balancing?

I would get the Monroe load levelers, it has springs built in to help the load.

Bilstein HD for no lift, or the 5100 series if you want to level it out. .75 setting brings it up a click. Thats what i have.

I have the Munroe load levelers now for about 60K miles. No issues and I drive off-road frequently. I also tow a toy hauler frequently and the shocks work great.

That's the first positive review I've heard of about the Monroe's in the year I've been here.

As I said, most here that have had them reported that they don't last or perform that well and replaced them with Bilsteins or Ranchos.

Glad they are working well for you bd.

I know you mentioned you dont want to do a lift, but OME/ARB Springs are meant for heavier loads, the 2" lift is just a byproduct of the stiffer springs. I have the ome HD springs in my xk, and it rides like it should have from the factory. I always felt the ride was too spongy before.
