I used the application chart at http://www.toxicshocks.com/pages/chevyapps.html
the fronts were way to short even though I chose the right ones (right ones according to their chart).
I suggest you go through the trouble of using ToxicShocks lengths page at: http://www.toxicshocks.com/pages/lengths.html
and figuring out definetly what length shock you need. Maybe use the current shock you have to compare and make measurements from. Good Luck! Hope this helps some.

btw if you need 411015 I have em, they say they are for a 3-4" drop in front w/ spindles and springs, but as far as I can tell they are for a 3-4" drop w/ just springs. I stuck the shocks into position to see how high the a-arm would have to go to tighten the shock down and it was 2" or more. lol. So howabout $30 each plus shipping :)
later.

I know this is an old thread, but I am just bumping it with the correct info as it is the first one that came up when I did a Google search.

StylinTrucks has the 411015 labeled as 2"-3" coil drop, which is incorrect. I just tried installing them, and they are way too short. Basically, I would need to compress the spring in order for the dog bone to be under the LCA. This is a bad idea because I would have no extension travel, and the shock would rip itself apart on the first bump. You would probably need a 4" coil drop in order for these to work properly.

I am going to have them replaced with a pair of the 413515, which measure a lot more like the Belltechs I am replacing with these. The 413515 are labeled as being for a 1" coil drop, but should work fine with a 2"-3" coil drop.

^this is what I always heard reading before I bagged. I have a set waiting to go on the front once I tear it down to lay the front out.
