utlax18 Thanks all...actually I was at 4 Wheel Parts getting a new steering stabilizer last week and asked the guy and he said it is a ProComp 2" lift. So now I know what shocks to get after I get my exhaust manifold replaced (cracked driver side). Man, the wife is PO'd about the list of maint. items on this thing at only 55K miles!!!

Umbra0101 Stock swing arms... You'd have to ask the JK guys, but I know if it's anything over 2.5 on a TJ, it would have aftermarket swing arms. Also the stock spring height on a TJ is 12", so you can measure the springs. Again, not sure on a JK, so maybe someone with a stoker could measure for you. Nice Jeep, drive it in good health!

daggo, seems like I figured that once to be a 34.4. Isn't that considered 35", you know, nominal size?

This was good advise. I had to do this to figure out what shocks I needed. I also got a used jeep with a lift. There are 2-1/2 spacers on top of my coils and i had factory shocks; not much downward travel distance left on them.

I measured my fenders: about 38-1/2" and I have heavy bumpers.

utlax18 Thanks everyone...i'll get pics tomorrow...I should have known better...DOH! I thought the measurements would have been more precise than a pic...but live and learn!
02-05-2012 12:16 PM
citified by your measurements I would say around 2.5 inches. my stock fender measurements are 36" all around. 2.5" lift and 2 extra inches of tire with the 35s

suicideking x4 on the pics! Show us what you got!!

You should be able to take it to your local 4x4 shop and have them look at it. They should be able to figure out what you have.

The part numbers on the shocks should also help figure out what you have.

EAD Offroad Never heard of either shock before. I think Monroe is a re-branded Rancho shock because the web site looks very similar to Rancho and also has a rancho link on it MONROE SHOCKS & STRUTS :: Ride Control Solutions from the Industry Leader. Oddly enough I think those exporer's are re-branded procomp shocks.

X3 on pics.

Used Jeep -what size lift do I have?

Hi All-

I bought a used lifted 07 JK last year and am getting around to replacing he shocks. Problem is, I do not know what size lift it has to know what size shocks I need?
Here is what I know. Current tire size 315/70R/17. Height from ground to bottom of factory fender is 40". Height from ground to top of Jeep is around 73"-73.25 (I think the stock height of a Jeep is around 71")

Are there any other areas I can measure?

This is my DD and I don't do any hardcore rock crawling, but do go off road, so I am looking at a shock that has as smoother ride and not too stiff.

The front shocks say "Explorer" on them. Rear shocks are Monroes.

Thanks
