Shocks!

What vehicle can I buy shocks for that are approx. 3 inches over stock length front YJ shocks?

There is a write up by ashland82391 about shocks to use on a lifted heep. I'm on my phone, so copying is a pain.
IIRC he found that ford shocks from different years work.

I didn't lift it... well not yet. I bought and am in the process of installing the m.o.r.e. front shock towers. They allow for an eye on the top and bottom and they also allow for a 3 inch longer shock. I'm on my phone too ha.

Once you have them installed measure your droop and order shocks based on the lengths needed. Try to stick to a company that sells by length rather then suspension hight.

Rancho has a really good Catalog online for there shocks. I used it to find what fits then use a cross reference catalog to use other brands. http://www.e-digitaleditions.com/t/29580 Specs start on page 152.
