    I'm not sure part numbers were ever posted for both front and rear, so here goes:

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

    These are exactly the same lengths as the shocks that came with my 4" lift kit some years ago. However, these are softer /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif, cost only $20 and have a lifetime warranty.

    You can actually walk in and tell them the make and model and if you find the right guy, he can select an option for "with lift kit" and these part numbers will show up (no joke). I worked with them and their books for a while and found that I could find the cheaper, softer kind of shocks for the front, but not for the rear (none were long enough). However, I did not record the numbers.

    They were having a buy 3 get 1 free sale, so I got 4 shocks with warranty for $60. (Rough Country charges $140, Skyjackers go for about $130, etc.) I think most of these "lift kit brand" shocks are made by Gabriel and Monroe anyway. Maybe someday I can run these rear shocks in the front with the Ford shock towers.

    Those are gas charged shocks.

    [/ QUOTE ] I think so too. My lift is pro-comp (not stiff at all) front with shackle flip rear. I noticed rear shocks too short , got autozone gabriels and they looked EXACTLY the same as pro comp shocks /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif So I put rear pro comp shocks in front and longer Gabriels in rear. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Well you obviously don't have a clue what you're talking about so I don't think your post much matters to anyone with any sense.

    It's obvious that your vocabulary is very limited so your word choice goes the direction it has.

    You can doubt my parts knowledge all you want, my customers trust me and that's all that matters for me to keep my job.

    I work for the #1 commercial auto parts supplier in the country, supplying nearly all the shops in this area. They choose my parts as well, and so do similar shops, at thousands of stores across America.

    Reguardless as to what you say with your limited vocabulary, I've sold thousands of sets of Gabrial shocks and I believe them to be VERY good quality. I highly recommend them for most applications, they're affordable, good quality, and backed by an outstanding manufacturer's warranty.
