I bought brand new take-offs from Ebay last year. I'm finally putting them in, but they appear too long.
They were listed as coming out of a new JK zero lift fitting back to 1997. He asked me if I wanted black and red or all black. I went with red.
The shocks were posted by a high-feedbck Jeep seller, so I assumed he knew what he was selling.
But they are a few inches longer than the originals that are still in the truck. I have the truck fully jacked up. Will my originals expand any further once I unbolt them? If I don't have the right shock, I don't want to fight the bolts yet.
Also. This is the oldest vehicle I have ever owned. I don't really know which rust to concern myself with and which is just typical. I've already replaced a rotted through brake line the first week I had it. I've posted some pictures. Opinions would be appreciated.
