    On m TBucket I have a red shock (Gaberial ) ?? #7256477 I need to replace this shock with one with 11.5 mount length and jounce length of about 8" and extended ( rebound ) length of about !3.5 ... I looked at all of the charts snd can't even find what shock I have now-- I may have put a front shock on the rear just for the size... Any differance in front OR rear ??? Thanks

    short shocks seldom have much more than 4 1/2 -5" of travel from my experience. The shorter the shock the less travel it seems

  6. Have you looked at Pro Shocks, just a thought. They work very well.
