Will shocks from 89YJ with 4"lift fit 95 Grand with 2" lift?

So, will procomp mx6 adjustable shocks that came off of a 1989 YJ bolt onto a 1995 Grand Cherokee? The YJ has a 4" suspension lift, the Grand Cherokee has a factory 2" lift. It's the orvis edition. Any help on this would be great.

a shock is a shock... it will work but unsure about the damper rate. if they're adjustable all the better

That is not true. Some shocks have different fittings causing them not to work on different models. Not all Grands like mine have the shock loop adapters installed, therefore they need the front shocks to have the bayonette fittings to work.

The shocks may want to bottom out when going over bumps! I would check with someone like Quadratec.com. They have a lot of useful information on suspension questions!

normally shock companies will give you supplied parts to accomadate different vehicles... the shocks on my vette, camaro, and grand cherokee would all be interchangable... you just have to adapt with bushings, etc.

Stock YJ shocks are eye/stem front and eye/eye rear.

Not sure about the length.
