What is the stock length of the front and rear shocks on a 79 cj? If I add the amount of lift I am planning on putting on to the stock length, will this give me the length I need? Seems like it should, but I just want to know if I am remembering everything.

79 CJ 5, 258, dana 30, model 20, T18, dana 20, 2.5" rancho lift, 1" shackles

The stock length is about 16". If you're lifting it more than a couple of inches over stock, you should get new, longer ones because when your suspension flexes, the stock shocks will stop extending before the suspension will.
