What’s a good rear shock for a 6” lift? The stud on top of my Fox shock broke Saturday on our way back down the trail.
I’m not nice to her and she gets rode pretty hard. Primarily used as a rock crawler.
These lasted about 3 years or so.

I've been happy with the Ironman 4x4 45682LFE1 rear shocks. I'm running them with a 4" Ironman lift and my 37s hit the wheel well before the shock compresses fully.

Based on this chart, they have ~11.5" of travel.

Recently replaced some Ironman Foam cell shocks with Slee shocks, 100% impressed. Inquired into King shocks but was told they are about a year out, Slee delivered in like 3 days.

I’m probably going to be going with the 12” short body bilstein 7100s. Theyre a little undersized for an 80 but they’re fairly inexpensive and tunable. It’s not a bolt on option, but I know that doesn’t matter to you.
I’m on a set of dobinsons but I they fade pretty quick when you start hitting chop and chatter.

I'm running the adjustable RR Icons. I drive the crap out of them at high speed over crappy terrain and haven't had an issue with fade (yet). Not the cheapest option though.

Forgot to add - Just ordered 4-6" front and rears - both were in stock and in my hands in 3 days.
