Do you think you will ever completely compress the rear? If so, then you will need to move one of the shock tabs on both sides otherwise the shock (the one I linked) will act as the bumpstop. The collapsed lenth on the shock is 19.XX" and the rear will compress to 17.XX" with that setup. The shock that I linked is the closest you can get to the size that you need. I had to do the same thing on my Ranger.

can i ask you if you put your sl and coilovers on your self or have a shop do it
I have done most of the work myself, including the gears. The only two related things I am not going to do is weld the gussets (for the coilovers) and the alignment. As of now, I still have to install the coilovers since I do not yet have the brackets, but that won't be any big deal. After that I will have to have my rear shocks charged, exhaust redone, and alignment. Then I will be ready for the road.

It sounds like you should not have a problem unless you pound on it.

Sure, just let me know.

So you will need to put on the SL and coilovers, right? Anything else?
