90 yj shock issues
:confused: alright not sure what length of shocks to run. . . . i just put a 4 inch rough country spring lift on my 90 yj the lift kit came with shocks but the shocks wont fit due to they do not account for a spring over axle lift so im a couple inches short on shocks not sure if a 6 inch lift shock will work or if i have to go bigger i measured from bolt to bolt where they mount and the rear is roughly 25"s and the front is roughly 31"s any help would be greatly appreciated i dont want to go throwing money away thanks

Do a measure for shocks search. The only way to replace shocks after a lift.

Measure the mounts again with the suspension complete flexed out. Extended and collapsed lengths and add an inch to each measurement. Order accordingly.

You put 4 inches on top of a soa?? Wow that's huge

Yea I didn't calculate the soa before I bought the lift oh well life goes on

U need shocks in the 12"-14" inch travel range. Ur sitting pretty close to the same height as me. I have 3.5 inch springs and I'm SOA. Front springs r 3.5 hd rear superlift springs and the rear r waggy springs mixed with the same ones I have up front, pus I have 1 inch lifted boom shackles...I have moved all the mounting points on my shocks from stock, but when I had stock mounts I used a 12" travel shock up front and a 10" travel in the back and maxed them both out. I now run 14" travel up front and 12" travel in the rear. Measure what they r fully compressed and extended(with ur shocks unbolted) if u want exact measurements but ur not going to be able to buy shocks for sum generic amount of lift in ur situation, unfourtunetly. Check out bilstein shocks they'll have something in the size u need and can handle just about nething thrown at them. They're also not as expensive as most people think. If u go with a generic white oil shock instead of a nice gas shock, don't expect much from them. They r ok on the road but from my experience aren't worth a darn offroad and won't last very long.
