Icon4 4X4 Shocks vs. 4X2 Shocks

Does anyone know if the rear shocks from a 4wd ranger will fit a rear wheel drive Ranger? I swapped my two wheel drive leaf springs with a set of 4wd leafs but i think im gunna need new shocks so i was thinking of putting 4wd shocks on it. Its a stupid question to ask but im just wondering.

Yes they will work. They are the same just longer.

If you have torsion bar suspension you take 4x4 shocks. If you have coil springs you take smaller shock.
