Are these shocks too long

I have a pair of bilstein 7100 12 inch travel shocks the collapsed length is 19.53" and extended 31.10". Are these too long run RE 4.5 springs?

You should flex out your suspension to see what your jeep needs.

Numbers are only relative to your application. Stop running in circles and go measure.

I think mine are 29"/30" extended front and rear.

But you will need to measure to get the correct application
