Cool Picking the right shocks

I have figured out the compressed length to be 14.5 and extended length to be 18.5.
I found shocks form skyjacker (N8012 front and N8023 for the rear) but there rated at 6000 lbs) and Superlift (85250 front and 85080 rear) but there also rated at 6000 lbs. My samurai only 2200 lbs . How will this effect the ride on road.
The Tire are BF GOODRICH LT235/75R15.
Springs are off a jeep Wrangler. The JP EATER conversion system by rocky road outfitter was installed. The last set of rear shocks destroyed the lower bushing on both sides. Some told the one piece are better than the two piece set.
The samurai is main driven on road around town. Any suggests?

Buy them.
I run F250 length Procomp 9000's with my YJ Spoa rig ( Long travel Kit )
With no ill effects. (6000lb rating)
The stiffer shock won't hurt the cornering ability of the rig.
It will ride a bit stiff but the YJ's will compensate for that.
Before you buy those shocks though.
Now would be a good time to invest in the Long travel kit .
It will allow you to take full advantage of the flex afforded by the YJ kit , and will soften those heavy shocks.....
2200lbs is a bone stock Zuke , empty.... No gear, no winch , stock tires and wheels etc.
