Replacement Shock While Waiting For Carli King Repair?
I have a 2.5 Carli King that leaks from the fitting that goes from the shock body to the reservoir hose.
It leaked when new,but I tightened the fitting it appeared to fix the issue but 4 months later I see that it has been leaking.
The turn around from King is a month,so I need a replacement shock.
I have a 1" Thuren coil lift,but I may go to a Carli 2.5 coil in the future.I am thinking of getting a Bilstein to run while waiting for the shock to be repaired,I am not sure of the best length to buy.
Will the longer shock compress enough to fit the truck at the current height?
Or,should I buy the shorter shock and use a shock extension if and when I go to a higher lift?
Bilstein 24-251754 Shock Absorber Front Lifted Height: 2-2.5"
Bilstein 24-239455 Shock Absorber 0-1"Front Lifted Height
