Considering pulling the pin on buying a 5" suspension lift for my Explorer but obviously, it'' be cobbled together using a ranger & 1st gen kit.
What shocks would you recommend for a 2nd gen with the 4" suspension lift?

Thanks

Si

I know a lot of people used to like the Edelbrocks, I'm not sure if they still make them though. I like the Rancho 9000s. Their latest models are super beefy and the adjust-ability is nice.

I'll have to look for them, I take it they do them for the 5" lift kits?

I don't think they will be able to say which shock would work with a lift, it would be up to you to measure and order the correct shock length.
