pro comp shocks?

so im piecing together a 6" lift, and for shocks im going with something cheap to get me by for a few months. i found pro comps that are for a 6" lift, but it says 2WD application. i don't see how there could be a difference in the 2wd and 4wd shocks.. they do the same thing i would think. unless because the extra weight in the front axle on the 4wd?

and yes, i looked for the 4wd but only came up with 2wd. i might just call the company because im sure they offer them but might not be listed

There isn't a difference other than how they mount and most pro-comp shocks come with an assortment of mounting options. I always go with eyelets on top and bottom. That way I'm flexible in application.

These are all of Pro comps shocks with lengths. I would go with the ES9000. They are a much better shock. Substitute a "9" in place of the first "3" in the ES3000/9000 section when looking up part numbers. These are universal part numbers that all vendors use. I buy mine from and My primary use for these shocks has been on my rock crawlers.
