Usually all the aftermarket shocks will have a stock length and then a shock 2" longer, maybe 4" etc. The dealer is not going to have anything longer. Check application guides online to find part numbers for the shocks you want. Talk to Kolak as well. He is alot of help and has seen them all.

Check with Kevin and his Team at KOR...Check Grand Cherokee Wrangler Cherokee Consultation Forum - Hard-KOR.

They will have you install the BB and then take hub center to fender measurements (HF) at all four corners. Should be somewhere between 19.5" and 20.5" with a BB and stock spring sag. They will recommend shocks based on the HF you supply.

I ordered my shocks from him so the consulting fee was $0 and also got the rear shock bushing kit.

With the stock shocks and a 2" BB I drove around for a month and a half (on pavement) until I got the shocks sorted out. The only thing I noticed was that the shocks seemed to be limited in droop when going over speedbumps.
