Shock length for SOA on a YJ

I am doing a SOA conversion on my 89 Wrangler, but I am not using stock axles I have some d44(rear from Scout II and front from a Wagoneer)axles. This is the most involved project I have done to date so I have a couple of questions on shock length. I am running a stud right of the axle so that there is nothing hanging below the axle and then I am using the stock top mounts both front and rear. I am using stock YJ leaf springs(custom building them with 6 leafs). After all that here is my question, anyone done a conversion like this and know the shock that I need?? and....If noone has that answer, then how do I measure what shocks I need after I get the SOA installed. Thanks for the help.

Re: Shock length for SOA on a YJ

You're gonna need to toss the front shock mounts or buy adapters...the bayonet mount severely limits your shock selection. To find out what shocks you need, you'll need to flex out the suspension and measure at extension & compression.
