OME shocks question

I have a question about my OME shocks.

I love the way that they ride. My ride is ten times better than with the RC shocks, but today while I was working on the jeep I noticed that my flex in the rear atleast is about half as much as it used to be.

I have always thought OME's were long travel shocks. Is there a part number I can check on the shock? I also noticed that the paint is rubbing off from the inside metal protector. I am not sure what to call it, but for the price i figured clearence issues from the actual shock would be worked out.

When I was looking at the flex, I was jacking up the rear corner of the jeep so I know this isn't the proper way to check so I am just curious. I also noticed the adjustable rear track bar is catching the top of the stock bracket limiting flex. Is there a way to fix this?

No more jeep for now
But I have free kandy and kittens in the back of my van
