Shock Mounts

Was wondering if anyone knew of a shock mount reference guide, been searching online and can't seem to find one. Trying to cross reference other vehicles that share the same shock mounts (specifically for the front). Any help?

Monroe has a decent catalog online. Once you find the part number for your stock shocks you can see what code they use for each end, then go to the size listings to find what matches. Not sure if that makes sense.... lol.

makes perfect sense, just thought there was some kinda reference book with all makes/ models mounting specs and I could easily cross reference which ones fit. It's gonna be a long night

Can't find any vehicles with an exact match yet. Question, will these work to change my front shocks to complete loop upper and bottom mounts?

upper: Pro Comp Loop-to-Stem Shock Conversion Mount Kit - Truck Customizers
lower: Jeep - Front Bar Pin Eliminator Kit - CE-9162 | Dirt Parts Depot - Jeep, 4x4 and Off Road Parts

Can't be that hard to make them fit, right? Bar pin and cross pin mounts are the same type of mount?

So I couldn't find anything, I'm working with a fox rep to help me find proper shocks. Was wondering if someone could read over my response if everything I said checks out for an edge with spindles, 2.5" shackles, and 4" lift block. Thanks

"
I found the oem shock specs for my vehicle. Based on these specs, my rear has about 4.5" more of travel length(14.875" total).I am currently running stock shocks for the rear but the shocks are too short and are now limitting my downward travel; so longer ones are needed. My fronts are the same spec but I can adjust from 0-2"(4.375-6.375" total) of travel length to accommodate for a proper length shock (really want the reservoir shocks for the fronts) :


Rear:
Upper Mounting Code Loop Bushing Mount - 5/8" Bushing ID X 1.5/16" Bushing OAL
Lower Mounting Code Loop Bushing& Sleeve Mount - 12MM Sleeve ID X 1.1/2" Sleeve OAL
Compressed Length 16.000"
Extended Length 26.375"
Travel Length 10.375"



Front:

Upper Mounting Code Stem Mount - 2.3/8" Stem Length X 3/8"-16 Thread Pitch
Lower Mounting Code Cross Pin Mount - Closed Ended, 5/16" Hole ID (Both Ends) X 2.7/16" Pin Length (Hole Center to Center)
Compressed Length 13.625"
Extended Length 18.000"
Travel Length 4.375"

heard back from fox. Was wondering if these shocks would fit my ranger? Worried about the front's being too long even with a 2" t bar crank. Any input?

"Rear: 985-24-055__ 2.0 X 14.1 PS SMOOTH BODY REMOTE RESERVOIR loop to loop
Extended: 34.950”
Compressed: 20.850”
Travel: 14.1”
Upper mount: Comes stock with 5/8 bushing and .5”bolt hole x 1.5”tab width sleeve which you can just remove once received.
Lower mount: This will require a sleeve swap. It needs; 213-27-000-B__ SLEEVE: 5/8" OD, 12 MM BOLT X 1.50" TLG


Front: My stem tops have a ½” -20 thread pitch will this work?
If so
985-24-056__ 2.0 X 8.1 PS SMOOTH BODY REMOTE RESERVOIR
Extended:21.3”
Compressed: 13.2”
Travel:8.1” (This is the shortest stem top I have)
Upper mount you will have to check if a ½” stem will fit.
Lower mount: This will require swapping a sleeve with this barpin. 213-63-000-B__ BAR PIN: 5/8" BUSHING, 2.468" SPACING, Ψ 0.320" HOLES"
