Is there a spec chart on rear shocks? Center to Center open and compressed?
I have an opportunity to get some fox shocks from a 95 ZR. Hoping that they will be
the correct size for my 97 EXT. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I don't think they'll work as the 97 has the ETT tunnel and the 95 ZR didn't. I could be wrong but I believe the 97 rear shock are 18 in eye to eye uncompressed.

I guess the only way is to take mine out and measure them. Thanks

The 95 rear skid shock is ok. 14.5 inches uncompressed. The front (or center shock) is only 10.5 inches. If the 97 has the TSL skid it needs an 11.5 inch center shock.
