they do extend the shocks a little.. the main purpose of them is right in the name "bar pin ELIMINATOR". its a mount that lets you get rid of the stock style bar pins that hold the shock up that cause a lot of problems for people

Yes...

lower front



Upper rear



Teraflex brand... work great. Used new upper rear bolts and welded in the BPE to the body. Never break a bolt again. The bar pins are a bit of a pain, and can make a bit of noise. They add about 1/2-3/4 of an inch of length. Detours makes longer ones in various sizes, but you are better off getting the correct length shocks.

they arent really needed but they make changing shocks a hell of alot easier and reduce noise. i have them in the rear of my jeep, my front never gave me an issue.

I've used them in the past to fine tune my suspension, shocks that needed a little less compression and/or a little more length.

using the stock rear sway bar mounts as a BPE on the rear works great and is a slight extension. i never really saw a need to do the front plenty of bar pin shocks available for the front.

edit: here are mine
