Suspension question

Do dana 44's require a shorter shock then the dana 35? The rear shock on the truck right now only has about 2in of the cylinder showing. That is causing my terrible ride. IF I hit any kind of bump it toss my all over the place. So I am going to have to get shorter shocks but has anybody else had this issue?

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

Nope, the TJ D44 uses the same length shocks as the TJ D35c does. I swapped from a D35c to a D44 and all of those types of dimensions were the same. Only the D44's pinion shaft protrudes out further, everything else exterior-wise is identical.

Jerry figured it out. The mounts on the axle are moved from the stock location to closer to the tire and then up. FML

2 fixes-
1- buy new shocks that are shorter
2- move the mounts back to the stock location.
I am beyond pissed right now.
