Shock length for AP Expo Leafs

Can't find the answer and have been searching for awhile on here. What shock length is necessary to run the AP Expedition Leaf Packs? And are ne brake lines needed with these packs?

Pretty sure it's a 27" extended length

Yes lines are needed .

You need about a 9.5" travel shock.
If you're running the expo leaves as a 4" lift (unloaded) then a 10" travel shock will work just fine.

So my shocks ext length is 24.3, and the coll length is 14.2. Which gives me 10.1 in of travel, right? Now I would like to use the AP expos due to the 4" lift, but I only carry surfboards, snowboards and turnouts in my truck bed. With the light load, how will it ride on road since these leafs are designed for heavier loads? Thanks again for all the help guys

Sounds like you don't need the expos, the standards are what you should be looking at.

Ya need the 4" the expos provide though. Trying to get rid of the bro lean I got going on. Might just get the standard packs and deal with what type of bro lean I'm left with. What shock length do you need for the standard leafs?

Shock length your looking for is 16"-27" depending on bump stops.
