You'll have to find the correct part number for your application. Should be able to find a listing at Quadratec.

The holes are typically the same size. The difference is in the length, valving, etc...

Yep, they can be made to fit.

I saw a '72 Ford Matador run them too. Or was it a '72 Dodge Gremlin?

They will fit on the rear but not the front unless you have changed the upper shock mount on the front. Front takes a stud for the top mount. Now to the rear, my YJ had two different size shock mounting pins so if yours is the same you may need to drill out the sleeve on one end. As far as length of the shock working with your lift. I have no idea since we don't know what the length of the shock is. Hope this helps.
