Help with Fox Shocks for 2.0" BB - WK

I need some help purchasing the right shocks/struts for my rig.
Next week I'll have a 2" BDS kit put in and I wanted to mate it to some Fox Emulsion Shocks 2.0" lift
On 4xGuards site I don't see any differentiation between front and rear application. Does that mean that it'll fit both, front and rear? So i would just have to purchase 4 of these, right?

What kind of jeep do you have? I don't think you are in the right section.

Fox doesn't make front struts for the WK.

Sorry on mobile version so no sigs show up. Bilstein makes nice struts for our vehicles, ICON also makes coilovers for us at a price though.

bilstein hds (4600s) or bilstein 5100s are probably the best options...

monroes if youre trying to save a few bucks- sensatracs are actually a really great shock if youre on a budget

Im running OME up front and Fox resi's in back.

What kind of budget are you working with? That'll really determine what your options for the front are.

And if you plan on wheeling theres a few minor mods you can do to run 28" long shocks to maximize travel of the rear axle.

I can get you a pretty good deal on Icon coilovers, custom length as well.

What springs are you running? How's your ride? Do you think I'll be ok running a BB with OME front struts and rear Fox shock? I'm concerned about mixing and matching.
