Budget Boost Shock Hardware Help!? (pics)

Fellow Jeepers,

I'm fairly new to the forum and Jeep world to start, just got my tj in January and love every minute of the addiction.

This is my first post, So my apologies if this is in the wrong spot or I'm beating a dead horse. (came up empty with the search)

Fact is, I've purchased a new set of extended shocks for my 'budget boost' I'm piecing together. The problem is the classic 'no instructions' came with them. Along with what looks like a bunch of extra hardware. 12 bushings, and a variety of metal sleeves in different lengths and sizes. I could use an idea or two on what bushings and such go in where on the shock. Also looks as if there are two different sizes of bar pins? If anyone could lend a hand with some information it would be much appreciated!

Pics should be attached.

The flat bushings and washes in pic 4 go on top of front shocks (washer - bushing - shock tower - bushing - washer - nut)

you'll need one of the bar pins and bushing in the bottom of the front and top of the rears

and a bushing and sleeve in the bottom of the rears

If I recall properly, there are two sizes of bar pins and two sizes of bushings that correspond to them, the smaller ones go on the rear shocks and the larger on the front. You have two good options, take off your old shocks and compare the size of the hardware that you know fits to the new hardware, or, what a lot of people do, get rid of the bar pins completely with a set of bar pin eliminators, they aren't expensive and they make life much easier.

Those look like Pro-Comp shocks, is that what they are?

Thanks for all the quick replies!

They are actually an e-bay purchase. From fat bobs garage I believe. Supposed to be comparable to the BDS brand ones. 1-3" taller. Anything will be an improvement to the stock ones at this point.

As far as bar pins go, is it a difficult install?
Or more of a quick bolt in replacement. Either way they look like an improvement compared to the factory method.

Bar pin eliminators are very simple to put in

I'm installing the 2"-4" lift shocks from fat bobs garage today. I've got the front passenger shock in in under 20 minutes. Hoping the driver side goes as smoothly. I'm really dreading the rear shocks though. Looks like a pain.

Get some PB Blaster and soak the top of the bolts on those rears. You can get to them from the wheel wells.

Anything but WD-40 which doesn't seem to do anything for Jeep rust. Lol.
