Ok, I'm just wondering if I need a longer shock, because I'm unsure of the new lift being taller than the shock is listed for.

I'll be running an RE 4.5SF kit with 3.5" springs. And the shocks I'm considering running are ProComp ES9000's... but the length that they say on ProComps site is 3"-4".... would that be sufficient? Because I'm always hearing that the 3.5" springs usually get you 4" or a little more. :confused: Or would any shock listed for 3-4 inches be enough?

sure. Any decent shock manufacturer should have expanded and collapsed lengths available on their website. Have you found said lengths for those shocks? Can you post them here?

I know they will measure the same... but will they be long enough?
what I'm trying to help you learn is the benefits of trusting your own eyes. If you are at x" amount of lift and want to go up Y" you can easily figure out whether those shocks will work. Measure the mounting locations at your expected ride height. It is simple arithmetic after that.

good! This is where I need the :wave: smiley

EDIT: Remember, if you mess up then you only have yourself to blame. That is the reason I do most all my own work! :)
