Measure the length you need. get the right length the first time. [url=http://s000.tinyupload.com/download.php?file_id=06133823891582575732&t=0613382389158257573256643]HERE[/url] is a PDF I made with several shock part numbers and lengths. They are all easy to get and cheap.

You can just get Pro Comp ES1000's from your local 4x4 shop or Lordco. I found part numbers off Boondoxmotorsports.com :

 Monroe oespectum (lifetime warrenty) , part number - 37199.... matched with 1.5" OME spings and 1" spacers stock bump stops.


Upper Mounting CodeStem Mount - 2.3/8" Stem Length X 3/8"-16 Thread Pitch
Lower Mounting CodeLoop Bushing Mount - 5/8" Bushing ID X 1.5/16" Bushing OAL
Compressed Length14.375"
Extended Length24.250"
Travel Length9.875"

After spending hours in the parts store looking through different shocks seeing what they had in stock. i finally decided on these  [thumbsup] . After installing I checked to see if I would bottom out or over extend the shock under full flex, everything seems to be fine i think id be able to add another 1\2" of lift in the rear and not have to worry.
