Hello

My name is José and i´m from Portugal.

I bought a SET OF 4 PRO COMP ES9000 +2" SHOCKS COMPLETE WITH X4 BRITPART YELLOW SPRINGS +1" from John Craddock.

Can anyone please tell me the aproximated the measures of the front and rear shocks compressed and extended???

Parts Number are 92456 - Front Shocks; 92457 - Rear Shocks.

I´m planning on to keep these shocks and mout twin shock absorbers...

Do you think i can use Procomp MX6-r in the front with 20.50" extended and 13.40" compressed, and rear shocks with 26.50 extended and 17.00 compressed .
I will be using a Loop-to-Stem Shock Conversion Mount Kit as well. Convert most Pro Comp loop shocks to a 5/8 stem. Adds 1.5" to shock length. Should i change something on the rear suspension?

I will be using Polyurethane Extended Bump Stop with 2" and Heavy Duty Suspension Check Straps on the rear, both from mm4x4.


Tanks in advance,
José

I would've measured mine for you but they are on the Rangie now.......

Have you tried phoning the suppliers and asking them the extended and compressed lengths ???????? Surely they must know failing which you need to get out there with your jack or find a convenient "hump" where you can fully compress one side and waggle a wheel on the other.

Hello mate, sorry for late reply been busy

both 92457 and 92456 are 14.8" collasped - 24.8" extended with 10" travel. The difference in part number is becuase of mount type.

Sounds like your mx6-r s are abit small and don't have a great deal of travel. Best way to work out how long your shocks need to be is to remove shocks and springs and measure the gap between the mounts when axle touches bump stops (bear in mind bump stops compress a little).

Most procomp shocks come in any combination of mounts so you shouldn't need to convert. but then i'm not sure about mx6s?

Out of interest do you know the spring rate of your britpart springs?
