Shock replacement

I bought a used TJ with lift kit already installed and it needs rear shocks. How do I match them for replacement? Take one out and see if the auto parts store can match it? Thanks

You need to measure the compressed length from eye to eye, and then extended eye to eye. Your auto parts store may be able to find you a shock in the correct length, or you can look online as well.
