    Ok,so all the part numbers running around are for the Ford Shock tower conversion. Does anyone have a part number for just a standard 4in/5in lift??? I need front and rear shocks and I dont want to pay $30 per for the crappy RS3000/5000 Rancho stuff.

    Thanks!

    Here is info I have seen posted before.

    Front: Gabriel G63437 (Gas Ryder Lt, VST) Collapsed/Expanded: 14"/23"
    Rear: Gabriel G63438 (Ultra, G-Force) Collapsed/Expanded: 18"/30"

    Were stated to be same length of shock that came with the poster's 4" lift kit. Also said lifetime warranty on those shocks.

    Are the Monroes better than the Gab's?

    Rancho = Monroe btw, same brand.......

    Really neither Gabrial nor Monroe is better, they're direct compeditors. If you want performance, go Bilsteins. Otherwise, go Gabrial/Monroe. IMO, there is no in-between.

    I just left Gabriel's web site, where put in those part numbers. The first vehicle listed that they fit were K5 Blazers with a 4" lift, exc. quad shocks.
