One thing you need to know when considering shocks for your lifted 4x4 is how to find shocks that fit. Every suspension lift provides a little different suspension travel, requiring a slightly different shock. If you simply purchase a shock for the amount of suspension lift you have, you'll get a shock that will work, but it may not be optimal. Having the wrong length shock can damage the shock or limit suspension travel, neither of which is desirable. Every modified 4x4 is unique, and the best way to find what shock length you need is to actually measure yours.
