Whats the collapsed length of the 14" ones you want to put in the front? Currie put 14" travel shocks on their two door and had to build a custom mount similar to what bond makes for coil over mounts in the front...other wise you have to put so much bump stop to keep from bottoming out the shock that you have no up travel at all.

Sweet mine should be here today or tomorrow. I had mine built with less uptravel but tons of droop. Going 40's with 3.5 long arm.

Rock Krawler, Poison Spyder, Rigid Industries, Currie and more.

Jason good point. I actually measured the shocks I have now in a standing rest position and sent the info to Jeremy. He built these specific to those measurements. Im hoping they are right!

Nice! What shocks are you replacing? I am trying to decide what I want on mine, these RK's, Bilstein 5100's, or 5160's. Can't wait to hear how you like them.
