Shock identification

Can anyone identify this shock? I'm coming up empty on searches. Just looking to put a new lift on this TJ, and want to stay the same height.

Numbers seem to be 751540 and 005324 2454

Thanks
-Pat

Measuring between the spring perches will give height, factory is 12" front, 8"rear. Anything above that is lift.
The shocks just have to be the correct length so you are approx 50%up/down at ride height. Shocks don't set the lift, the springs do.

Get out and explore.

I guess my thought was to identify the original lift height based on the shock identification. But i think you're saying the same shock could be used for multiple height lifts.

It's in terrible shape. When I measured I was around 15 up front. So would lead me to believe that there is a 3" lift. But, has time just caused a 4" or 3.5" to sag a bit? Is that possible? I figured it was a possibility, but I dont know how much of one. Should i look for spring identification to get a more straightforward answer?

The question is what do you plan to use it for, and what size tire do you want to fit safely?

Then you can determine how high you want to lift and go from there.

Get out and explore.

31s-33s. Snowy road and beach use. Right now I'm planning on getting the q-tec 3" kit.

look into Zone, especially the 4.25" combo lift if you want to run 33's. their 3" will allow you to run 33's but there are several benefits to running a bl and mml. zone is regularly considered the best of the budget brands

the QT kit is a skyjacker lift thats rebranded for QT.

I'll look at Zone. Thanks.
Will I need to change a bunch of other stuff with a 4.5" lift? I dont want to get into it all that much.

thats the beauty of adding a BL and MML, it lessons the angle on the rear driveline which eliminates the need for a SYE, CV driveshaft, and adjustable arms or even worse, a TC drop taking away from the lift in the most vulnerable spot.

zone is a solid choice for a budget minded lift kit.
they got a standard 3" lift.
then they have the 4.25" combo lift.
that is the normal 3" lift, with a 1.25" body lift, and a 1" mml.
either would work well for you.
