ZJ Shocks

I have a 5.5" rustys long arm lift kit and i am adding in some 2" blocks to clear my 37's. What length shocks do you guys recommend? I dont have an SYE yet but i do have the t-case drop and long travel yoke. Any ideas guys? Thanks

Grab a tape measurer.......
Measure eye to eye at full bump
Subtract one inch from that
Get longest travel shock possible using that compressed number
Get some limit straps

32" in the front and 28ish in the rear. complete guestimation on my part.

i'd call up Claytons and order whatever shock they recommend/sell with their kits.
