Shocks for raised rear ends

Post by cole63 on Sun Apr 03, 2016 7:04 pm

I had to raise my van in the rear 2" to clear some 15x10 slots in the rear. I now need new shocks. Does anyone have a part number on a set of shocks that will work? I searched here already, but came up with nothing.

That would be great. Just looking for a part number so I can get a set.

Thanks, Cole

These are the ones I used on my van and I just lifted it 1.5" and don't have a problem with the rear shocks. Not sure if I'm at the limit of travel or not. The ones I got for the front are a little longer, but maybe ok in the rear if it's lifted. Notice the travel distances given in the item descriptions.

I called Monroe .. told them the compressed length and total length of the shock .. they gave me a part number .. I went to the local AutoZone and ordered a set .. Gabriel or any company should be able to do the same .. Air shocks tend to "bounce" ... They can probably just use the numbers from the stock application and ad the extra that you give to get you where you want to be ..

Thanks for the tip. I plan on calling Monroe and telling them my situation and hopefully get a shock. I was being lazy and wondering if anyone had source readily available. haha
