Help with Shocks

I have a CJ7 with a 4" suspension lift. I would like some help with selecting the correct shocks. First, are Trailmaster SSV any good?

On the front, I measure about 21" between mounting bolts. On the rear 23". On the Trailmaster page I see two different shocks for the front, A freind said to put the same as the rear. My question is which way to go. Quadratec says to use one with a range of 13.42/21.70 on the front, and 15.67 / 26.2 on the rear. Or should I use the 15.67/26.2 all the way around.?

If I put on the 13.42/21.7 on the front, how does it go out much further when the other side is compressed? I am clueless to shock functioning obviously. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
