Anyone have a 7" lift?

Trying to find the right size shocks. What are you running?

probably not. there is pretty much no need for 7" lift on a JK. but, considering you have a skyjacker 5" lift, you probably didn't actually get 5" of lift out of it - probably closer to 3.5 or 4. skyjacker, rancho and FT are the three companies that don't actually give you the lift they advertise.

you probably only netted about 5.5-6" total lift between your spacers and lift kit.

look for a shock made for 5.5" lift and i'd bet money it will be sufficient.

I was thinking the same thing. Might try the bilstiens. Basing it off skyjackers 6" lift shock specs.

Here is what I use for about 6 inches:

Rear: 29.83 Extended / 17.32 collapsed

Front: 29.77 Extended / 17.09 collapsed

These are really long and I get TONS of travel. So much that I will lose my rear coils without limiting straps. They might be just about right with 7 inches of lift.

You can also try these Procomp numbers for 5-6 inches of lift:
929599
929519

The Teraflex 6" lift (which does run a tad taller than 6") comes with shocks that are:

Front 18.52-30.89"
Rear 19.25-32.09"

Some will think I'm nuts.... but I went back to a Hydro shock. I didn't like the way the Procomp gas shocks worked. They were to mushy on the road and didn't dampen well coming off of big rocks, etc.

I am about to completely redo my entire suspension and go with a brand new Rock Krawler Suspension system that will hit the market very soon. An option for their new kits will be a shock that everyone is going to want! Keep an eye out.
