    Oooooh, that seems like even more of a problem, maybe?

    Fully compressed the Monroes measure about 12 1/8th inches eye to eye. The stock shocks with an empty bed measure about 13 1/2 eye to eye. Is that enough stroke to have anything in the bed without bottoming them out? 1-3/8ths inch?

    I may have to reconsider this.

    When you’re measuring the eye to eye distance, check the clearance between the axle and the limit bumper on the frame, (should be near the spring).

    Thanks Brian, that makes sense, that would place them 2 inches or so further up in the stroke of the 3100's

    I think for me i probably need to deal with my stock shocks until i get around to doing a lift, or grind the eyes and not put much in my bed until i lift it.

    I believe banzairx7 made a post in the sambar subforum about finding a smaller length monroe shock at 17.875" extended which might be better suited for stock height. Take a look at Monroe part #32207

    I think that KYB, has a shock selection application which you can download, and run on a PC. I haven’t used it in a few years, so not certain on this. But, if I remember correctly, it will allow you to enter the attachment minimum and maximum length, and the mount type, and it spits out the KYB part numbers that will work. then you have to figure out what meets your dampening rate.

    So, looking for stock shock replacements for front and rear of a Carry van. I suspect the rear is the same as the trucks. Are the front struts the same as the trucks or shorter?
