What size spring did you run these with? I'm interested as I think my procomps are to short

These were never installed on the Jeep, so can't say how the length would be. :oops:

Based on my Jeep, I think they would be great on a 4.5" or slightly taller Jeep. Measure from the upper shock mount to your lower shock mount, and I can see how these would fit. Should be able to determine the uptravel and downtravel based on that.

4" procomp springs. 21" from mount to mount, and 5.5" gap between bumpstops. If I'm first in line let me know, and if that measures good.

Extended: 27 3/4"
Collapsed: 18 3/4"

Sleeps, that gives you 2.5" of up travel... You would need to do some cutting to get any decent amount of uptravel.

Re: FOX RACING SHOXS

I had these prior to Phillip. I installed them on a 4~4.5" and promptly pulled them as they were to long. The only way i could have made them work was to cut and extend the upper front shock mounts.

I don't guess I follow what you're saying. The shock is too long and will bottom out or is too short?
The shocks would be too long. You would bottom out on every bump.

You need 4" or more uptravel.

Ok bud, I'll take your word for it. But what am I missunderstanding. Isn't uptravel the amount an axle can move up before it binds or is stopped by contacting something? SO If there's a gap of 5.5" between the bumpstop and its pad wouldn't I have 5.5" of uptravel unless something else bound up first?

Re: FOX RACING SHOXS

I think he is saying that with a 4" lift you only have so much room between the top of the shock tower and the shock mount on the axle. if you have 21" inches from mount to mount and the shock fully compressed is 18.75" you can only go up 2.25" before the shock bottoms out. you may have 5.5" between the bumps but the shocks will bottom out way before the bumps touch and will cause damage to the shocks. When I measured for my rears I was told it was good to try and keep around 1" of up travel to spare at full bump just incase they hit hard and compress farther then normal. To run the shocks and keep the 4 up and 6 down you would need around 23.5" between mounts so you would have to either run taller coils or extend the shock tower up a few inches.
