So I start this one with I shud have known better. I'm finishing up my lift and bought new shocks. Ranch 5000 all around. One problem. Rock auto did not specify that the front shocks are for 4x4 and stupid me didn't think to pay any attention to the picture. I only saw the price and ordered them. Went to put them on the truck and....
the didn't fit. So after about 30 min of thinking about what I just did and $100 more than I shud have spent later I have factory replacement shocks on the front
so I started doing some research and I'm coming to realize that I'm probably going to max out the rear shocks to. I was smart enough to order ones for a fwd with a 2 in lift witch "should" give me 4 in to play with. I'm adding 5in all around. So if your reading this and are about to or have done the same thing I am doing I found a solution rough country N2.0
. They have a front shock that's for a 97 rwd lifted 0-1.5 in [pn20060]. And rear shocks for a fwd (my 2in + whatever lift) 2-4 in lift [pn20027]. All together $172.20 + shipping. There's the research. I hope it helps some people from making the same mistake I did.
