Im looking for suggestions from 92-02 Trooper owners. This is for the wifes 96 Trooper(its sees mostly asphalt). She just broke the front shock, so time to replace them. I put Pro Comp ES3000's on the 93 Trooper, Im not impressed but not terrible. I was thinking KYB Gas-a-just. I have read reviews ranging from one end to the other. Calmini's didnt seem terribly priced either. Thoughts?

IMO the best Trooper shocks are OME Nitrochargers...might be a bit of overkill for the planned use though.

Bilstein HD's from shox.com are $269 shipped. I've had them on several vehicles and really like them, especially with stock springs.

I put Monroe sensatracs on my wife's trooper and it sees nothing but asphalt. They are perfect for that. OME's are the best but I'd go for sensatracs if I were you.

Gump is right though, they can be bouncy. KYB I like to. they are a bit longer stock and stiffer to eliminate to much "bounce" and won't break the bank either.

Best bang for the buck for your application is the KYB Gas Adjust. Rockauto.co has them $33.79/$35.79 and right now they have a promo going on.....buy 4 and get $40 back. the KYB's ride great and are still good for moderate wheeling. I have them on both of my 98's

Careful!!!

Adding more Zu's means more potential wrenching. I loved all 6 of my Zu's but those 3 first gens along with my daughters 98 (4 at one time) turned into constant PM and occasional large repairs. It wound-up taking the fun out. i sold off my first gens and bought a 98 with a 5-speed and now just chilling with the 2-98's

I have my 96, the new one is a 99. The 99 is just getting and a cank to the tune of 2' to match the new rear springs and 265s for the wife.
