distortedtj 4'' skyjacker coil lift with 2'' skyjacker coil spacer. Skyjacker control arms.

Skyjacker shocks. Hopefully for the 6'' lift.

2002Apex def. 6". looks like a skyjacker brand due to color of boot, coils and bushings. but transfer case lower isnt skyjacker, looks more like procomp or a cheaper brand.

lol i wouldnt have mentioned the chart had it not been shown to me by the more experienced members....so looks like a 4" suspension with a 2" spacer kit...So i think you need shocks for a 6" lift.

jerryj I have a 5.5" Rubicon Express lift and before I put the Kings on it I had 2.0 Fox racing shocks with a piggy back resi.I ran them pretty hard in the desert and loved them.You can find them for 185$ each they are totaly rebuildable and the kits are 24$ each and 45$ to replace a shaft.If you order them the store can tell you the length you need.I sold mine and made my own mounts for the new shocks so I dont have the length.

pakman55 then I think its got to be a 6". Looks like there is a good amount of clearance.

Get some with the tire at full turn to reveal the coils and shocks as well please.

stevens243 Well hopefully the person that did the lift put the correct length shocks on.

IF that's the case you can simply measure the shocks you have now and shop for some new ones.

Best to confirm. Take some pics of the suspension and post em up and I'm certain that someone here can ID the lift type and height.

Thanks.
I have heard great things about Blisten but dont have any experience with them. Im fairly certain you need to know the lift height. I have seen a chart on WF that has coil length vs. Lift, Ill try to find it. Im sure others will give you better info than I.
