How do I know what shocks?

I've got a rear shock that blew out the bushing and it's driving me crazy with all the clanking and I just got some money to smartly replace the rear shocks. But I don't know how to tell what specifications I need to be looking at. I know the rear shocks upper mount is a bar pin type and I don't know exactly if there's a lift or how big it is if there is one. I'm on 31s and there's a Tcase drop. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Mike,

The best way for one of us to help you out, is to take some pictures of the Jeep. Post those up and that will be a good start. Next, you will want to remove a front and rear shock and measure them. Take the measurements end to end, compressed and fully extended. Post up those measurements and that will be the best way for us to get you the exact shocks you need.

Hope this helps, if you have any other questions, feel free to ask!

-Zach
