4.25" of uptravel is plenty.
Is it the shock that is limiting your down travel? I would think you would have a little more overall travel with the shocks that you can use on a 4.5" RE kit.
OK I may give that a try if I can't get something else to work. My tools and materials are really limited here at school, don't even have a drill. Which is why I was hoping the front ones would work and I could just get them mailed to me or pick up someone elses stockers they replaced.
Those are the shock that came with the lift. I though 9" of travel seamed a little short. I haven't had a chance to flex it out to the max yet but what else would limit the travel?
So I just went and measured them at ride height and looked up the specs on REs site. They have the shock lenghts as 15.375-24.875
My length was 19.875. I swear I measured 9" of travel not 9.5" as they advertise, with the shock off the jeep. So I have 4.5" up and 5" down according to their specs.
97casteeltj, don't worry about measuring them, they are going to be too short. I will either be adding a spacer or getting the RE extended bump stops.
