New shocks

Hello,
I need to get shocks for my new Land Rover. It's a 90 with about 2" Lift.
I was thinking about Fox, King or Bilstein 7100 with remote reservoir (I believe they are all in the same price range)!
I was looking at pictures of all three, and I would like to hear opinions on the eyelets/ rod ends, as Bilstein`s seems to be weaker than King and Fox! Have you had any experiences with that? What about the shafts??
What shocks do you guys use? Any pros / cons. Let me know what you got thanks.



Regards,
Joca

Welcome Joca...

Tell us a little bit about how you use your Defender...

I have plain old Bilsteins on my SW and the adjustable Rancho 9000's on my ST.

Have the 7100s and have no issues with them.

I like Fox Emulsions.
No need for the Resi.
I prefer the the Eye design of the Fox/King to the Bilstein's, although I have several sets of Bils and like the shock I have also broken a few.

that's three versions
