i need shocks!

So I have lifted my yj and am trying to get the right shock to fit the lift and still give me the travel I want. My current is a soa with3.5 inch springs. Eye to eye in front is 26.5 rear is 22 3/4 at ride height. What size shock do I need? Thanks!

some manufactures have application charts that explains which is the best shock for your need for how much lift you have

Only way to get correct shocks is to cycle your suspension, take measurements and order accordingly.

So go find a spot to flex out and find out what you need.

Foa makes some good shocks. I do not know anyone running their reg emulsion shocks. I do know a bunch running their Air shocks,and coilovers.

A plus is that they are rebuildable, but i think a good set of Bilstien 5100s would do the job just fine as well.
