You will get best ride and most out of the high quality shocks if you go ahead and replace all 4. I highly encourage you to go ahead and do all of them; you won't regret it.

Forgot to comment on the install cost. I paid $360 for all 4 shocks and the luxury of knowing a Chrysler tech, who is my dad. We put them on in His shop where air, a lift, a wall mounted spring compressor and alignment rack was easily accessible. These could be installed yourself, but if you know or have access to someone like this it will save you quite a bit of $$ and time

I figured I would see a decrease, but after I had them installed I drove 350 miles and was getting 19.5mpg...the same as before I leveled her. I'm going on a 550 mile trip this weekend and will let you know if I still get the same.
