Any auto parts can get you shocks for all size lifts. I work at Oreillys and we can order Rancho shocks for a 2inch lift 4inch lift or a 6inch lift.

Those will fit your needs. Use the internet to find your best price including shipping after you decide what kind you want.

Same question with a twist....I currently have a POS 4" Pro Comp Stage 1 lift (VERY ROUGH RIDING). I wish I had the money NOW to buy the RE 4.5 Extreme Long arm I have planned for. YET... I was told if I replaced the ES3000 crap shocks with something better (thinking OME or Rubicon) my Jeep may ride better for the time being. So here is the twist... I don't want to buy shocks now and in a year buy another set.. (Guess I'm cheap) Sooo... If I buy shocks for 5-6" lift, which I was told is what I should buy for the RE 4.5 kit ?, will I be able to run them on this 4" lift now and if so will I damage the shocks?????
Sorry for the SERIOUS HI-JACK of your thread!!!
Thanks for ANY help!

Go with a shock made for a 3" lift and you'll be golden.

Usually shocks are made for a range of lift heights (as noted with the OP above), so you'll need to check the manufactures specs.
