Does anyone know if there are any shocks from a stock application that will work on my B2 with 4" susp lift? i got the complete lift, all I need now is shocks. wondering if i can get any from some kind of stock rig so i wont have to pay a shit load for some. i could care less if i even have shocks, i just need something on there to pass inspection when i get her licensed next week.
Or if someone know what length they need to be, that would be great too.
thanks

You need to get the right shocks for the lift. My advice is to go to a 4x4 shop and ask them. They can do the measuring for you. That is what I did and I let them tell me the length of shocks I needed. I went to 4Wheel Parts and they even mounted the shocks they ordered for me for free!!! I liked that!!!

You can get rough country shocks made for your size lift on ebay for areound $120 for all 4. About the same price for decent quality stock shocks from the parts store. I had them on my B2 and I had no complaints about them.

Just go to Summit or wherever and pull up a 4" lift shock for a BII and look under applications to see what else it fits. It is amazing the things a stock 4wd Ranger shock will fit.
