I’ll be measuring later on today. Warm her up this afternoon. Cold morning -50. But she starts no problem. Resilient beast lol. I’m waiting on my tail pipe in the mail. Previous owner didn’t attend to it. Then get it in for control arms all around changed. Alignments. Ask him to measure my shock for me compressed, etc. so I can order all around shocks. But like you said Tom I’ll measure this afternoon. See how much from sagged over the years.
Do you have a block heater for ambient temperatures that low? That's flippin cold. What weight oil do you use?

Yes my Jeep has block heaters installed. It is frigid right now man. Brutal. Right now for the winter season I am using Ams Oil 0w-30 until it warms up again. Maybe two more months of below zero temps.

Measure your shock ???
No need when you give specs we can then tell how high you are sitting and know what would work best

Hey Tom. Just wondering if you thought about my shocks overnight? I want to keep it about 2.5 “ lift. I know you suggested Bilstien. Can I get part numbers from you. And coils also too. Please. Your the best.
2 inches of lift
sagged 1/2 , without knowing age of springs not too bad
So let me think a minute on right shock length for the rear
