Domgoldst on a stock jeep?
02-25-2012 11:26 AM

I believe the measurement is 18" to the bottom of the cab under the door.

Domgoldst Thanks so much. Ok I believe they are stock but I am not sure. I tried measuring the shocks while they were on there and got something like 24.5 inches all the way out but i plan on taking them off this weekend. I was thinking about skyjacker shocks. I hear they start to leak though. And if i do get shocks would it be ok to just get front ones for now or should I go all the way around?

95YamJam Well the 3" body lift leave you with 25" tot he rocker. Somewhere on here there are some stock rocker measurements. IIRC 22" was a stock measurement. So it looks like around 3" ? Do you have stock shackles?

Your best bet with the shocks might just be to take them off and measure them. Collapsed and all the way out. Most good shocks will give you these measurements. You can just match them up.

Jeep Suspension Questions

Ok so I have a 1994 Jeep YJ and I got it about 2 years ago. So im fairly new to the jeep world. I didnt really know anything about jeeps when I was looking for one all I knew is that I loved them and wanted one. I bought this jeep with modifications already done. Ive been reading alot of these forums and gaining alot of knowledge. So it rides really stiff, and ive always just thought "its a jeep". But I plan on experimenting with the sway bars and tracks bars and checking the torque on the leaf springs. I was wanting to get new shocks and dont know what size to order. It has a 3 inch body lift I believe which im not a fan of, and 35 inch tires and sits 28 inches from the ground to the rocker panel. could anyone tell me how big of a suspension lift i have and what size shocks, and brand would be a good choice?
