    Default JK suspension help

    Hi, I hope someone can assist me. I am looking for new shocks for my Jeep Jk. The current lift is 4inches but would like to future proof the shocks if possible. Would you recommend I buy fox shocks with the ability to be rebuilt and have enough travel for 6inches later on. Or go for half the price option of bilstein 5100 shocks all around?

    Agree. Fox take forever to rebuild.

    As far as I know, they are not serviceable. The 5160s are though...but $$$
