monroe "mono-max"

order them for a level II

there just about .5" longer then stock

i had problems with KYB's topping out and riping the bushing out of the top hole.

If you have a body lift and spindle lift, you dont need longer shocks for the front. The rear will need approx. 3" longer than stock.

i had a spindle lift, and adjusted torsion bars, i had problems with the shock "toping out" and riping the upper bushing through the frame.
