My 90 B2 is in bad need of shocks. It is not jacked up or anything. I was thinking of JBG shocks, or Duffs shocks. Are either ones of these good? The JBG are $36 a shock, and the Duffs are $37 a shock. Or is another brand I should go with? On my SD, and Mustang I only run Bilstein.

I put monroe-matics on mine, see my thread. They are soft and give a good around town ride. They will bottom out in the back on really big bumps,
Ideally I'd like them maybe 10% stiffer at three quarter to full compression.
I'm interested to hear what others like and how you like the shocks you end up choosing.

I’m still not sure I’m leaning towards the JBG right now.

My credo
Do what you can with what you have where you are
I wanted to stay completely stock so I went with OEM MotorCraft shocks. The B2 has never gone off road and the ride is fine on the highway.

The Monroe shocks are good and not too stiff.

I like Rancho's for mild off road use (hunting), good on road ride also.
