Long time lurker, first real thread. I'm doing a build this spring (currently deployed) and part of it is a 4 link so I'm collecting parts. I was wondering about lenths for shocks and springs for my coilover setup. I found some used ones but I'm not sure if they will work or not. Anybody got a rough idea of what lengths I will need. Truck is a '90 SS factory 14 bolt, will be about 5/5 drop when I'm done. These are the coilovers in question.

Internal Design Twin-tube
Gas Charged No
Bushing Material Steel rod end
Bushing Color Natural
Coil-Over Springs Included No
Recommended Spring Diameter (in) 2.500 in.
Recommended Spring Length (in) 14 in.

They should work, you can always adjust the mounting points to get the correct ride height for the application. What are you using for a mount on the axle and the frame?
