does anyone know of a good set of shocks to use on my bagged s10 for the back... i took some measurements today and the max hight of the shock needs to be 17inches and when the truck is down it has to be 9 inches.. i went to my local parts store and they didnt have anything that compressed that much... and even if they did the shock would prob be bottomed out... let me know if you have any info... like some websites i can search or something... thanks

You may have to get a shock with a little less stroke, and just mount it kinda crooked instead of straight up and down. This will allow you to not bottom out the shock, but will be a little softer as well. Hope that helps, good luck.

well considering that they're 24" extended, they should be around 12" compressed....

just dont mount them straight vertical, give them an angle.
