Coilover shock info wanted..

I've searched high and low and can't find the info I need. I'm looking into getting coilovers for my truck now that I've got all of that weight (C4x4 bumper/Superwinch) on the front end.

I'm needing to know the length of coilover shocks for a stock suspension truck. The length from eye to eye on them. Collapsed and fully extended might also be nice? Total travel?? Plus spring weights, etc. Basically any details I can get from all of you guys.. The reason being, I'm looking at a couple of used sets right now but I'm not sure exactly what I'd be needing..


Anyone??

Thanks Camodown! Hopefully he'll chime in on this thread. I hate to bother anyone I don't know with a PM.. I was thinking 800lb'ers myself, from what I've read on here.. It's the other details (length, total travel, anything basically) on the shocks that I need the most though..

Wow. Anyway, I've searched around and got an idea on the specs of the coilovers needed but is there any other source for the coilover brackets now? I've read about RCD and such but my understanding was that you couldn't buy them seperately?? Anyone?? Any info?
