doclouie Ranchos website breaks them out by lift height. I love my 9000s. I just ordered another set when I upgraded the lift.

roachscpgc go with a 5" and compress it slightly. 1 " longer is better than .5" short, the shocks obviously wear and start sagging. I feel like rancho should have the right shock or call a company who carries them and ask what is better. I put the ranchos on a month ago, and "WOW!" What a difference. I got them because of the responses to them on this website. hope this helps

tcate23-WRANGLER Well, some shocks wont tell you the size for the lift. You need to determine that based off of the lengths. I would recommend OME,fox,bilstein or even bds. Replace all 4 while your at it, improved ride quality.

Need help. Shock absorber advice.

I bought my 2004 rubicon about a year ago, and the bushing is gone in my right rear. I know they should generally be replaced in pairs, and I've been looking on RockAuto Auto Parts which is a cheap place to get any stock parts. They offer lift kits and parts for lifted vehicles, but I am kind of stuck and need advice before I order.

I am looking at some "rancho" shocks, and have a 4" lift. I can't seem to find any shocks for a 4" lift though. Would a 3.5" lift shock work, or a 5" shock? I don't wanna screw anything up, and don't know what to order. Any info would greatly help.

Thanks, Jeff.
