What size shocks?

I got my 2.5 rubicon express coil spring lift. Parts store told me the shocks for 2" lift will work fine. Anyone know about this ?

They will, but you might want to look in getting longer ones. Fox shocks tend to run short. If you look on Rock Krawler's website, they will give you the right part number for the Bilstein shocks for that lift.

I know you don't have a Rock Krawler lift but it should be the same.

The Bilstein 5100s are some of the BEST shocks out there, you really can't go wrong with them.

This page has the part numbers for the shocks:

Rubicon Express Part RE7121M - 2.5" Standard Coil Suspension System with Mono Tube Shocks-RH2

Then this page has all the shocks that they make:

Shocks - Lift Kits, Suspensions & Shocks - -RH2

If going with different shocks, you want to compare the extended and compressed lengths.

You do not need to get RE shocks for the lift. You can get whatever you want.

Also pretty sure you want shocks for a 2.5 - 4" lift. Not for a 2".

Measure from shock mount to shock mount at full droop and compression then use Google to find a chart of the brand you want to run, and pick your shocks.
