    Interesting! I wonder if these would work to raise up OY's droopy drawers an inch or two without going to the coil over shock option? I probably have to have the leaf springs re-arched also, but this might help.

    These are fronts not rears. They do offer one on that page that might work for the rear.

    FRONT= RideTech 22139850 (Ext 10.91"/ Comp 7.06" / Strk 3.85") Covers OE operating range plus.
    REAR= RideTech 22179845 (Ext 17.2" / Comp 10.55" / Strk 6.65") Extent is biased a half inch low but I'd be surprised if this maxes out before the leaf spring.

    Mounting/operating data matches up fine with known good shocks for our cars (Monroe and KYB) but I don't know anyone that physically tested the mounting hardware yet.

    Dampers will not affect static ride height unless they have air bladders or helper springs on them. As in "load levelers". For those just hit up Rock Auto and grab a set of MONROE Max-Air MA750 or GABRIEL Hijackers 49346.

    Confirming the fronts install with no issue, my set of rears should here here in a week or so but they look to be good too.
