Shock Question

So I purchased my 2008 JK X two door about a year and a half ago with a stock 3" lift. Recently I had to replace the shocks, and used ProComp shocks for an installed 2-3" lift kit. The installation went fine but I did notice that the stock lift kit has 3" spacers for the existing stock shocks. I'm wondering if, since I have shocks for a 3" lifted Jeep, can I remove those spacers?

ProComp Shocks I installed are #924507 (rear) and 924510 (front)

There is no such thing as a stock lift kit...if Jeep installed it, it is made by probably RE or such...and maybe they just used spacers that came with the lift kit. Again, no such thing as a stock lift...

You can remove the coil spacers but make sure you have the top rubber coil perch bushing. Post up a photo of the top of the front and rear coils.You will also want to check the sway bar links as these may have been added because of the additional height.

But I'm not asking about coils. I'm asking about the shocks. I'll get a picture in a little bit.

Sorry about the mis read. If you got new shocks for a 3" lift then yes take the shock extensions off. You should have only about 2" of up travel available with the extensions on.

X2... However, if Jeep installed it it's prob gonna be hard to tell what brand without some pics.

A pic is gonna go a LONG way here. Taking the shocks off and measuring the collapsed and extended lengths will go even further.

X3 I know exactly what you're talking about and yes you can remove the shock extension brackets! You should have them on the front and back and as long as you bought 4 extended shocks you can and should take out all 4 brackets!

Here are pictures of the front shock and the rear. Rear shock you can see how much of the ram is exposed with the bracket in the picture. Other two are the ram of the front shock and a pic of the bracket.

FYI, MOST of those white body twin tubes are Tenneco units.
