    http://yuma.craigslist.org/pts/2900137094.html

    For a good price...hes about to send me the extended and collapsed numbers..
    2.0 with 10" travel...what do you guys think? Will they fit my 4" inch lift ass? Also, would need a conversion kit if they do fit..

    You are going to need an adapter for the top, the stock set up uses a pin not a rod end style but those adapters are not hard to come by.

    other than that I see no problem with it

    Do you have blocks right now? If so, it prob wouldn't make a diff either way!

    Measure what your collapsed length would be. Measure the shock mount to mount and minus the distance from bump stop to frame! The adaptor adds closer to 1.5"!

    3 in leaf pack and a 1" block....only way to keep my bro-ness to a miminum...i wish i knew more about shocks...i see that the 4" 5100 with 10" travel are abt the same length extended and collapsed as these, but if the adapter is more like 1.5" then...im already confused..

    I have the 4" 5100's with my Expo Leaf pack. Whatever DSM publishes as travel #'s for them are about perfect for the Expos. Ironically enough, the box is labeled for Tundras, which kind of makes me wonder about the valving, but they work perfectly and I trust DSM.

    I say to give it a shot. My ideal rear shock numbers are about 16"/27" with my allpro pack. Since you have the lift blocks, then i could see the adapter length be off set by the block height.
    The issues that may need to be fixed are:
    rear brake lines will be too short
    Bump stop may be too short

    Adding 1.5" takes away from the compression but moves the extension; meaning you might run the risk of the shock bottoming out. You can combat this with a taller bump stop (if it is even a factor).

    Buy the conversion kit, Gordies might have it. Install with the resi part up.
    the shocks will work for city driving, but you will need longer bump stops so the shocks dont compress before the bump hits.
    you will lose uptravel though
