Shock Question

Ordered shocks from Kolack in anticipation of doing a 3.5 inch lift. Have had to put lift on hold for awhile but jeep really needs shocks. Can I use them with stock height for now?

I doubt it since most 3.5" lifts like IRO's are closer to 4". I don't know why you would want to go through all that trouble and then risk damaging the taller shocks anyway just to have to do it all over again.

the shocks Ive looked at for my 2.25 bb have all had a 1" or 2" height variable.
example: good for a 1" to 3" lift
just though his shocks might fit in between a 2.25" and 3.75"

Shocks should be measured not generalized but I see what you are saying.
