    i just looked at their website... im not seeing any shocks that match my dimensions... shit! im wondering now if my compressed measurement is accurate. i know my extended that was obvious up on the lift but callapsed i just callapsed my ome shock all the way and measured that. i wonder now if i would hit bump stops before bottoming out the shock?????? thoughts?

    idk sometimes you might not be able to find the perfect exact measurements in a set of shocks. Ya you can extend the bumps

    Yep, shock boot down & shocks are side specific (shorter shock driverside,longer one pass. side) & for the record you can get the 5125's built to whatever spec. you need generally..;)
