Hey, Howdy.

My '98 Tacoma came 4th hand all tricked out including lowering about 3 inches in front, but with no documentation of what was used. I have to replace a broken front shock, so will replace both. I'm trying to determine the right length of shock to use. The old one, no longer available, is about an inch shorter than the stock Toyota shock. As far as I know, it worked fine. It has about 3/4" of dirty unused shaft length at the top. So - I'm thinking I'll use a new one of the same length. I found a Bilstein (my favorite brand), BE3-2674 heavy duty, that is a 1/2" longer extended and 0.8" longer when collapsed.

MY QUESTION: Is this size close enough to work OK?

It's about a 1/2 inch shorter than stock, but about a 1/2 inch longer than the old one used with the lowering. The coils look full length. Drop spindles were used.
