Fronts are :Do you know the extended/collapsed lengths of the Mojave shocks? If not, could you measure them when they arrive?
This is awesome... I can't wait to hear how this rides. Are you doing the Mojave front spring also (or any spacer lift)?Fronts are :
15.750 - 23.750
Rears are :
17.750 - 25.750
They weigh 12.5 lbs each. Have 14mm bolts both front and rear upper and lower. They are no joke, full Fox Racing shocks. Not a made for Mopar and are missing something. They are bad to the bone internal bypass shocks.
Need to make some bushing/spacers and will get them on soon.
That's good to hear. I was wondering how much it relied on the jounce bumpers, and the extra compression on the bottom 2" may be part of the equation.I'm currently on a set of synergy 2" springs, front and rear. I'll run the Mojave on those with 2" shock bracket.
The non tech feel of just smashing them by hand, they are in-between the JT Rubicon Fox and the stock JL Red Rubi shocks. But, they have internal bypass that kick's in at the top and bottom of travel. They really firm up the last 2" or so of travel, both top and bottom, both compression and rebound.
I ordered these and while the top is correct the bottom is not. The outer diameter is too small see picture below,Easiest way to make rear JT Rubicon shocks work on JL is to order and install the JT Rubicon front bushings in them.
Top PN 68274895AA
Bottom PN 68274045AA
You’re right, the bottom is push fit, and not press fit.To further elaborate on this, the bushings have the same part # but are clearly different. I am Able to insert the bushing with my hands, it is not a press fit.
I went ahead and installed them and they are an improvement over the red Rubicon shocks. They are much less jarring over bumps. I am ordering M14 bolts and nuts for the bottom mount and will reinstall the original bushings.
Now I am in the market for another set for the other JL!
