Hi,
Can anyone tell me the part number or details on what shocks to use on a Brumby with a 2" body lift ?

If your lift kit has Shock extensions(most do) then you'll use standard length, so anything that says it fits a Brumby or MY sedan/wagon.
If you don't have or don't want to use the shock extensions, then i'll shut up and listen in! cause i'd like some longer travel shocks too!
Daza.

Wilbur is an unknown quantity at this point
Is it 60 series landcruiser shocks that fit...maybe ?


As for long travel if nobody can help, you may need to remove your shocks and get measurements of compressed and full flex and match something up in say a rancho catalogue (that can be found on the net).

Thanks for the feedback .. I will just pull them off and order a set from the book, just thought if someone had already done it them that would save me some time and effort.

I am not running rear shock extensions or front strut blocks. I have 2" body lift but am going with longer travel struts and longer rear shocks.

Have also pulled the blocks and am going with a sub frame so that I can tie the blocks in at front and rear as the current setup looked a little to much like stacking blocks for my liking. Once done I will go and get it approved just to keep the DoT happy.

Over here in WA all the lifted MY's use the MGR-504 Monroe GasRisers, as found under the bum of HQ sedans. We do use an adaptor for this though.

What tim said. However both sets that I owned would develop leaks and would require constant pumping up to stay nice and high.
