Hi guys I am thinking about replacing shocks on my jimny they look battered and the rear lower bush has gone on one.

The guy I bought it off said “2” body and 2” suspension “

The shocks have no identifiers on them. Is there an easy way to work it out or where to measure from? I’m running 235/75/15 tyres. It looks high, got a pic next to a standard (I think) and it looks a load higher. I’m not convinced it is 2” suspension but due to liking the height I don’t want to order and fit a 2” and discover it was 3 or 4

Any ideas / anyone measured theirs with a 2 + 2?

Hi! My daily driver -



Has a 2" Trailmaster Lift and a 2" Body Lift and 235/75.15 Tyres, and measures...



46.5" to the underside of the mirrors...

Hope that helps?

In addition to the above if you can remove one of the shocks and measure it's fully compressed and extended dimensions you could get the supplier to check the ones being sent match this as a minimum. If you can get a smaller shock with a longer stroke it's the off road Holly Grail

Any chance you can post a picture of the damper. Someone is bound to recognize it as there's only a limited number of aftermarket dampers that are usually used on Jimny?

Guys thank you all for the input. I have attached pics and it seems to be measuring higher than Daves so not sure if it is 2” at all now

You could post some pics of the radius arms that hold the axle to the chassis, to see if they are standard or after-market. Generally 2" kits use the standard arms, 3"+ use HD ones usually (for a full kit).

The Panhard rod looks standard, so I would guess that its on a 2" pro-comp kit, most likley Jimnybits. The extra height might be that its a 3" body lift instead of 2", or different spring/shock manufacturer to Dave's.

For the body lift have a look at where the body bolts to the chassis and you will see a block in-between the rubber bushes and mount, measure that and
you will see how big it is ;-)

Can't see what you think is broken in pic
But I've looked at open/closed lengths on net and your shock is +2"
body block looks like a 2" to me with the cut down rubber possible stands at 3"
