      Ex95XLT,
      I have the TT/Shackles with Rancho shocks (stock size), and everything works fine. Does your 95 have the TTB or IFS? If it has IFS, you might not want to go longer than stock because you will put excessive stress on your cv joint at full droop. If you use the stock shock size, the shocks will limit the droop. If you do a search, Taxxman2k did a write up on some Ranchos he found for the front that had longer than stock travel. Some minor adjustments had to be made though.
      One more thing, did you have to do much trimming to fit those 33's? Do they rub at full stuff?

      95s have the Torsion Bars, unlike the 1st generation Twin Traction Beams. All Xs are technically IFS. Stock shocks will serve you well for the most part, but a slightly longer shock will help some.
