4 inch lift and ProComp shock owners

Hi there. I went to the local 4x4shop here in the Netherlands to order some ProComp Shocks for my 4 inch lifted 1988 K5 Blazer. But is isn't listed in the books here so we do not know what partnumbers to order. Can anybody help me with this?

Second question, I have the 4 shock front suspention. Do I HAVE to place 4 or are 2 shocks enough? I was thinking that the 2 extra shocks can be left out if I put 2 stiffer in.

Thanks alot in advance. Means alot.

I run stock rear shocks (23.5") on the front in place of the auxilary shocks and don't run the primaries.

For the rear I run some Gabriel shocks that are ~27" long.

I looked on explorerprocomp.com and can't find the numbers for the life of me.
You can safely run only two shocks, and they don't need to be any stiffer.

might be a stupid question, but I guess that that are the fully extended lenghts.

Yeap. The old rear shocks have like 9" of stroke and the new rear shocks have 12" of stroke.
