    i have searched and found part # g63438 for autozone gabriel shocks. i beleive it said they had 12.5 inches of travel and were being used for about 4 inches of lift. i currently have 4 in procomp front springs and 4 in block in back. i carry alot of stuff in the rear of my blazer and hardly get a chance to take the top off, so my rear sits significantly lower than the front. i recently bought some 6 in bds spring for the rear to replace the blocks and hopefully level it out. i was thinking i would replace all four shocks well i was installing the new springs. will these shock be long enough or do i need a different part #? they will be going on 77 if that matter. any help or recommendations would be appreciated.

    also the truck is mostly driven on the street and trails. i was thinking about adding a longer shackle or zero rate in the front if it ends up sitting way to high in the rear too.

    I run the Gabrial shocks all around and the rear is long enough.It's like a six inch lift because my shock mounts are 2'' lower than the stock axle,and I have a 4'' lift.If your running a 14 bolt ff with 6'' of lift I don't think they would work.
