Shock Length SOA

I have taken the rear of CJ 5 to SOA. All well so far. My question is--how do I go about determining what shock length will give me the max articulation. I have spot welded a bracket near the bottom of the axle for attachment and plan to use the original upper mounts. Need help!!!

Flex that sucker out and take some measurements! I went to a loading dock and flexed mine out.

Re: Shock Length SOA

Yes, Do what Jamgood said. Then take those measurements and find the shock you need. Rancho`s web site give`s complete dimension`s, Colapsed/Extended, With part #`s for all their shock`s. I have`nt looked myself,But I would imagine the other suspension mfg`s do the same thing.
