lift shocks?

Did you get new UCA's with the spring? I would look at replacing the shock with one made for that 2.5" coil lift like the bilstien 5100 or the fox, but depends on how much your looking to spend their are other cheaper shocks available. your looking for a shock that measures 16.21" extended and 10.68" collapsed.

the uppers seem to have enough space to play still. im guessing its more 2 inches than 3. as for shocks. i dont know where to look for that specification. like i got to ORW and enter in my truck and it gives me no options for such parts. just brings me to 3 shocks that fit with the stock ranger.

as for performance and price, i dont care much for performance. just nice ride and nicely priced.

Thanks for the input about the web site I'll have to look deeper into that, but there are plenty of options that we offer for your coil lift kit. shocks will run you from $45 all the way to $185 depending the quality of the shock.
