Re: Shocks for 3.5 Lift
Yeah, what GLenn said. It is easier than it sounds. You only really have to do one side front and rear and use that measurement for the other side, too.
Make sure your compressed length for the shock is about an inch shorter than your actual measurement. You want to leave a little play there. Ditto for the downtravel. So if your measurements are 15" compressed and 23" extended, then get a shock that measures 14" compressed and 24"+ extended.
Do you have that amazing spreadsheet with the shock lenghts for all the different manufacturers? I forget who did it, but I think I have a copy of it around someplace.
