1994 XLT 4x4. Not sure what kind of shocks I need. Those part numbers (740075, 740085) aren't popping up with anything. Rear lift measures 25" from wheel center to the arch and 23" in the front

Lead follow or get out of my way
I popped Rough Country in before your part number.

These are for a 2 1/2 - 5 inch lift.

Scroll to the bottom and it give shock specs... might want to measure what you have and compare.

Deengineer until it is how Blue Oval should have sold it!!
@SamC777 ,
I 100% recommend calling James Duff LLC to learn more about their 70/30 shocks and dual shock kits. Tell them what you have, they will have you take a couple measurements, they are great to work with.

Ultimately, if you desire to have a MUCH safer driving experience, with virtually zero body roll, look into their dual shock set up. Use dual 70/30 shocks both front and rear, it is just plain magicical how they control body roll.

When turning the inside 2 shocks extending with 30% resistance each, equate to approximately a single 50/50 shock while the 2 outside turn shocks with 70% resistance to compression function as a triple 50/50 shock setup!!! While driving strait they all are 70% resistance to compression and 30% resistance to extension. Makes for a very smooth, controlled driving experience.
