Need a little help. I've searched for hours and haven't seen any actual part numbers for shocks for my 93 w/ a 6" lift other than bilstein, Its driven on pavement 95% of the time. I want a smoother ride on the road, at a lower price.KYB, Monroe numbers would work for cross reference. Thanks for any good input.

Not Trying to Jack this thread...I need some help...time sensitive. I apologize in advance!!

Hey guys...need some help from the bronco vets on this site. I dont have enough posts to start my build thread yet...or any thread. I guess I need 30 posts to start mine. I really need some help. So I got really lucky and scored a Superlift 4/6 inch lift kit complete with drop pitman arm, all the drop brackets, and etc...from the pick n pull for $65. I am gonna use it like it was mounted on the other bronc at the JY. It was used as a 4 inch kit. I need to get shocks. I am doing a complete rolling resto on the Bronco so I want to get the good stuff. I already rebuilt the e4od and did a bunch of stuff like complete tune, 6 litre tune, etc...I have been using the search function and reading up on here.

The people selling these shocks through SUmmit Racing, 4 wheel parts, and a couple other places were NO HELP (they knew nothing about fitment for the bronco, weren't sure about anything)...So I decided after looking at everything available on here at FSB (after an exhaustive search) that I want the Bilstein 5165 Part number 25-177497 for the front and 5150s for the rear. Someone on here had suggested these parts (number 25-101874 for the 5150 rear). I ordered it all up. So my question is this: I realized after ordering these that the 5150s that were suggested were for a 6" lift. Can I safely use these? If not, what part number for the 5150 rear shocks is recommended for my 4 inch lift? I have some real shitty RS5000s now and they suck. I do have the quad shock option but as was suggested in another thread, I decided to roll with single 5165s in the front.

Bilstein 5165 Info:
Collapsed Length (IN): 11.77
Extended Length (IN): 19.19
Travel Length (IN): 7.42
Compression: 2400
Rebound: 3665

5150 iNfo:
Collapsed Length (IN): 17.78
Extended Length (IN): 29.7
Travel Length (IN): 11.92
Compression: 740
Rebound: 2665

ANY HELP IS MUCH APPRECIATED. I also apologize in advance for any mistake in post location and did not mean to threadjack. Thanks so very much for your responses.
-T OUT!
