Shock Length Help

So i'm in need of some longer front shocks and im just going to try and get them

from the local oreilys because i'd like to get them in before my wheeling trip this

weekend.

I Just need the measurements eye to eye of shocks for a 3" Lift, compressed

length and fully extended length. Either that or the same measurements for the

stockers and I'll just add on a few inches for the lift. Thanks.

I'm not sure of the length but anyone who sells shocks can look it up and give you the right length shocks.

Why not measure yourself?

What works for someone else's 3" lifted TJ may be too short/long for your's.

And I definitely wouldn't trust what the parts store recommends if they even have that information for lifted vehicles.

Ok, its all good now. I measured em myself and then oreilys was able to cross

reference the measurements. Tomorrow morning i gotta go pick em up, and for

like 12 bucks a shock, I dont have much to lose.

Good deal.

Now you know for sure that you're getting the right length shocks.

Yah, I was sitting in class when i first started this thread otherwise i wouldn't

have started it and measured the shocks myself. I was just being lazy at the

time
