Question What size shocks will I need?

I currently have 3.5" BDS leaf spring lift and am going to convert to SOA when I have time. Pretty sure the shocks I have now are not going to reach the mounts once I lift it.

Please help me figure this out so I can get everything that I need.

Oh yeah, I need to probably buy SYE as well, right?

yes on the SYE. for shocks once you have the SOA done just measure. compressed then extended . you can find shock numbers on a skyjacker web site. or the guy at WFO concepts can figure out what shock if you give him the right measurements. then don't forget brake lines,drive shaft. bump stops, steering. axle wrap. Mine's SOA and it was a little expensive, but well worth it.

Thanks, I know about all the other stuff you just mentioned as well. It's nice to know how helpful fellow Jeepers are and what kind of wisdom you all bring to the table. The reason I want to lift it a little more is because my tires don't have enough room and I hate that they rub when in off-camber situations.

How much were your passenger side knuckles? I've seen some set ups that did not need modification... Not too sure how that worked out.

Kinda free. used tera flex high steer. friend wasn't using it so I said he could store it on my jeep. spacer and heim joints work. but there is a chance of breaking the knuckle.
