Ok, so you appear to have decided to buy shorter shocks. Now go back to the other thread again and read what I've said twice now:

go with a set of Old Man Emu N67's. you'll need 1.5" rear bumpstop extensions. buy a set of 2" rear upper bumpstop extensions from Rubicon Express and cut 1/2" off them. you'll more than double the uptravel you have now and it will ride nicely.

kill most of the uptravel with bumpstop extension.

This means buying about 3" of bumpstop extension and referencing that picture above. You need both measurements to be equal....do the basic subtraction and find out how much bumpstop you need. Buy that much length in bumpstop extension and install them.
