Hey, i own a full set of wrangler jk shocks. I have the front ones installed on my XJ. I recently lifted it more so I need new shocks.......But
I was doing some research, wrangler shocks are exactly the same length as stock XJ shocks, at least according to the monroe website.... I thought they were supposed to be longer b/c they are good for 2-4" lift. That is including the rubicon shocks.
Yep, you are correct. The front shocks from the JK are almost exactly the same in length as a stock XJs. People seem to spread information around JF without actually knowing if it works or not. However, the rear shocks are longer so they will work.
ok, thanks. I fell into that pitfall. I was wondering why my shocks were so short. I have a monroe part number for a shock that is perfect for my uses. How would i go about buying that shock at autozone/napa/etc?
The monroe part number is 74431
But they don't have the monroe part number, just their own....
I literally JUST put JK shocks on the front of my XJ with no lift about an hour ago and thought the same thing. "Boy these should barely fit in here if they're for 2-4" of lift, wtf?!"
I'm going to go ahead and second/third the JK front shocks are same length as stock XJ/TJ front shocks.
I haven't messed with the rears yet. I'm doing rear HD leafs (allegedly 1.5" over stock) and JK rear shocks this weekend. I will report back.
