    Most all shock companies have a list where you can find the shock that will fit your need!
    You need you know what extended & collapsed length will work!

    I've used KYB's on most of my rides, ordered the Nitro Dropped shocks when I first rode static ,they would not fit through the upper a-arm!!
    I have run Doshtech shocks ever sense being bagged!!

    just to let you know... decided on the kb monomax. BEST damn decision ever. i have drop spindles. great ride. front end gives a LITTLE on bumps and dips but only enough for a comfortable ride. I love them.

    Do they have a drop shock mono max? I'm on LCA's and cranked torsions for camber and don't want to bottom them out and blow them. Any help?

    I'm thinking of getting the monroe shocks since the kyb's are a bit soft.

    Just picked up a set of monomax and swapped out the monroes that were in there, the kyb's are quite stiff, took some muscle to install
