Manufacture Date: /1989
Need a Replacement front shocks for my f150 4 wheel
drive with 2 inches of suspension lift. The shocks in front of the springs
seem to need to be a smaller dia than the shocks after the springs. thank
There is no real control over the diameter of the shocks.
Note that monotube performance shocks (such as Bilstein, Edelbrock, and
KYBs) have a slimmer body because they don't have aeration problems like a twin tube, and don't need a large oil reservoir.

Since you have raised the truck, you probably have a larger tire, so you need a shock with a lot of dampeing power. That's going to be a monotube.
Does the modification / lift kit company say you have to use a longer shock?
Or are you using a stock length shock?
