they're only a few inches, but remember this, every inch of shackle gives you half inch of lift, and with old springs even less. post some pics, we'll tell ya what ya got

try to show pics of the shackles, if those are 31" tires you have around 1-2" of lift. buying the 2" shocks should be just right.

Stock YJ shackles are 4" bolt to bolt (At least on a 94).
