What length shocks do I need?
There is no set length, every suspension is different. Just because you have 4" of lift, doesn't mean you should flip the catalog open and order 4" lift shocks. You don't want the shocks to be a limiting factor in your suspension, if you try and use them as bump stops or limiting straps, you will go through shocks quicker than yzergod. The best way to determine "proper" length shocks, is to remove your shocks (disconnect the sway bars too) and flex your rig out then measure each side for compressed and extended lengths.
