    Would there be any downside to putting them on a non-lifted KJ? Or would they be too compressed and have shortened service life?

    No point. Get the stock length 60069s.

    The compressed height is most likely too tall, and will bottom them out more easily.

    Love these shocks. Had the yellow/blue Bilsteins (2 sets, both blew out in 30-40k) and the OME ones have about 30k on them and so far so good. I prefer the ride of them too, a bit less bouncy I think.

    Are they in stock indefinitely or is it a limited run? Might pickup a set to have as spares if it's limited run.

    Same.... buy now in prep for the full lift later... piece my parts together to put in a pile until I have everything.

    I'm double checking to make sure
    if limited run or time I may buy 4 or 5 sets to have them in stock

    Yeah, if you could figure that out that'd be great.

    Response as long as there is a demand they will keep making them, JBA has 6 sets at the shop and 6 sets at the warehouse

    If you have the Ironman shocks do yourself a favor and put them where they belong (in the trash). I didn't realize mine were bad out of the box until going with the 132Ls.
