Bilstein Shocks

Front - B46-1738-H2 (H1 option for more stiffness)
Rear - B46-1739-H1

"I installed these on my VX (H1's in front) a couple years back, and while they are an excellent choice for the VX with a very close-to-stock ride, the rears are probably stiffer than they need to be, and a softer one might be appropriate for the VX. After all, these Bilstein models are actually the ones they recommend for the Trooper (they don't have a recommendation for the VX), and the longer Trooper probably carries more weight on the rear axle, requiring a stiffer shock to counteract the additional inertia."

I ended up going with the Bilstein shocks, and I'm very happy*with my choice. H2s up front and H1s in the rear. I keep a heavy tool box in the rear, and from the front the rear shocks feel great. My rear seat passengers would argue that though... but I don't think anything will feel good to someone sitting directly over the rear axle.
