Part numbers read 24" eye to eye. I've got 21" eye to eye at ride height.

With the Deavers and the shackles at their max, these shocks I do not believe to be long enough, which is what probably caused them to blow on mine. But, I have a Frontier so things are a little different there.

What's the actual model number on the shock? Is it BE5-6253-H5? If it is, your measurements are correct and it's an 8.5" travel shock. If you're lift is on the low end of the 2-4" spectrum then you'll be OK.

Rear is set at 3". Only needed to push the shock in about 1/2" up to install it back on the lowest mount. Thats y i ask how long are they.

If that's the case you have 1/2" of down travel in the shock. Me thinks that's not quite right. Where did you buy the shocks? If purchased from PRG, call Greg back and talk with him.
