Default TJ 3" Lift, Rear Shocks, AutoZone??

I am trying to get some TJ 3" lift rear shocks quickly. Does anyone have any for sell? Does anyone know what OEM year and vehicle shocks might work for this application? Since AutoZone is filled with people who got fired from McDonalds, you cant just tell them shock lengths to figure out the part. You need to know if it has air conditioning and fog lamps to get the correct shock.

Thats kewl. So $50 shocks $30 gas, two hours + driving (time = $80), etc = About $160. Hmmm, I guess thats not gonna work so well.

Having Jeep done = Priceless.

Aren't rubicon shocks 2" longer? A cousin put rubicon coils on his TJ a few years back to lift it ~2", might be something to look into.

Go to autozone and ask for the shock book it's under the counter if they don't believe you. You can go to lengths there. It will take a few min but it's what I did for my tj with 5" of lift

You said quick not cheap:) Sometimes I think that would still be easier than going to advanced. If you have to have them I would possibly meet you half way if it would get you out a pickle.

Agreed, but I ended up with something valved for an F550 or Kodiak just to find what fit- Ask Sharpmachine or Liv2mx......they fit but ride quality was lacking.....
