    Skyjacker Black MAX 8500 Series shocks are exactly what you need if you want improved performance wrapped in a black shock. Increased ride and style with a price tag that won't break the bank? That's something to write home about - but since nobody writes anything anymore, just install the shocks and hit the road.

    Black MAX shocks are designed with an advanced foam-cell technology. The advantage of a foam-cell within the shocks is that is compresses during oil expansion, and also eliminated air within the shock. 8500 series shocks have an increased fluid capacity that maximized head dissipation. Each end mount has been 360° arc-welded and provides 180° directional mounting. Stablesteer valving makes sure that your tires are always making firm contact with road, which ensures a smooth, comfortable ride.

    Each shock includes a black boot, and like everything Skyjacker does, is backed by a limited lifetime warranty. So, what are you waiting for? Get a pair or get a set, and hit the road or hit the dirt today!

    Love these shocks....I put them on my 01' Grand Cherokee and man can I tell a difference in the ride of the vehicle now. Installation was fairly simple, the pricing was great and it didn't break the bank...The appearance isn't the best.....you have to put the black max stickers on the shocks themselves and the boots don't fit very good. I wish they would have just made the boot on the shock initially. Overall it was well worth the money for these shocks and I'd buy more of them for my other vehicles when its time to replace them.
