No problem, and yes i just updated the part numbers for AutoZone.

I would recommend do all 4 at the same time or at the very least do them in pairs because the measurements probably are a little different then the shocks that came with the lift.

Will these shocks work on my 1988 YJ as well or is there a difference between an 93 and an 88?

Every YJ had the same suspension so yes these shocks will work

I'm still running these shocks on my YJ with a 3.5" lift. No issues yet!

Awesome, glad it helped. Mine limit my flex but i still have plenty for most trails.


This is when the shocks limit the flex.

The OP wasn't running anything on his suspension except for these shocks, correct? I'm wanting to throw away my pro comp suspension lift and just go back to a stock ride height for now. I already have the stock springs/shackles. Just wondering on the shocks, and will do this for now if it's ok for an all stock rig. 1/2" booms all around soon after, and eventually I'll figure out what route I want to take with my rig.

I'm just tired of riding around on what feels like a wagon with wooden wheels and no springs.

No, the OP was trying to find a low cost alternative for his lifted Jeep...

Never mind. I just noticed that this is a old Thread.

Did you fix the axle that had twisted off of the spring. First page top picture on the bottom.

All i have for suspension are the springs and shocks, it's my daily driver and rides great this way. I took off my track bars and sway bar last year and never looked back. there are no adverse effects without them only positive results.

Don't know. The over 12" of travel in front was what really sold me. I've really had no problems other than some slight flex limitations. I've been thinking about just moving the shock tabs on my axle.

Thank you for doing the grunt work.
I went with the Monroe's because that is what O Rilley's had.
My old shocks were dead and these seem to work just fine for my needs.
