Jeep shock absorber application guide - Quadratec

Goes all the way up to 6" of lift. With a springover and 3" springs do you have more than that?

Have you measure the distance from the mounting points at full flex and compression?

Exactly, this is the best way to know what you need, nothing else will come close, great response!

Decide what shock you want, then go to the manufacturer website and llok at the listings. The retailers don't list every shock made by a company, only the popular ones. The manufacturer will lust every shock they make and give length extended and compressed.

In order to get the right shocks, you will need to know what the measurments are between the shock mounts compressed and extended.

on the front disconnect the sway bar and take the sway bar mount/leaf spring plate and rotate it and use that as the lower shock mount....gives ya about 4" or 5" i think...thats what i had to do

as far as the rear goes....i had to just weld on new mounts on the axle
