    I do not know, but for road use OEM shocks are best, fronts are longer than rears.

    Make sure they are the right length or you could end up bursting an airbag

    I put the rears on mine. I trimmed the lower bush. The shaft sticking through the mount is not long enough. No idea how they were meant to fit.

    The shocks are a lot longer than stock. Lot more down travel available. About to fit extended brake lines and the ABS sensor lead needs more slack.

    Don’t fit the bottom 2.

    The non +2” TF shocks are same with the cups.

    Have you tried jacking the axle up putting a bit of weight on them, which will push then down in to the top cup.
