    My 99 GMC Diesel, old body style, currently has 33s that fit fine but doesn't have any kind of lift kit I can see (it does have cast lower control arms). I went to the parts house bought some shocks but they arn't long enough(shock bolt hole to bolt hole sitting on the ground is about 16" on the front). I was looking at some Rancho shocks, how do I know which ones to buy? All of the Rancho shocks listed for lifted vehicles had a rancho lift part number listed. It seems to me that I need a shock for a 4" lifted vehicle with stock mounting provisions, but they don't show a shock for like that?

    Measure eye to eye of where they need to mount, then call wherever your going to get your shocks and thell them your dimensions and they should be able to help you figure out which ones you need.
