shock length ?

right now my jeep has a 2" spring lift, and the shocks that came with that lift. i've noticed the shocks limit my downward travel.
I'm buying some 4" springs, and need shocks to match.
my question is what's the compressed/extended length for the shocks that i need?

as long as you have 2" of bumpstop extension go with the OME long travels. they are something like 26.5" extended front and 24" extended rear. I don't remember the compressed length but your fine with the extra 2"s of bumpstop. FYI, your shocks will ALWAYS limit your downward travel unless you have limiting straps.

hmmm, not good enough for ya huh?

try this...

to find your compressed length, (assuming your not increasing the bumpstops from what you have now), take the ride height of your shocks and subtract the distance between the rubber bumpstop and the axle spring pad that it will contact.

for extended length, the more the better. the specs I mentioned above give respectable droop.
