Shocks for Zone 3"

I have the zone 3" on my 17 denali. I have the zone nitro shocks right now but I was looking to upgrade to the fox 2.0 res. My question is they only make those for 0-1" or 4-6". Will the 4-6" cause me any problems?

If you go to the Fox website and the go to the Adventure series shocks (not the performance), you should see some that are 1.5-3.5".

Looks like for the front you might be wanting PERFORMANCE SERIES 2.0 SMOOTH BODY RESERVOIR SHOCK
(Includes Billet Reservoir Clamp) Front ALL 1.5-3.5" 985-24-191 $269.95


Not sure if you plan to use the resi in the rear as well or not? the general consensus is that their a waste in the back and to use the non-resi shocks for the back.

When I had my Zone 3" with the Foc adventure series it rode great! Better than my BDS 4.5 lift with the performance Fox non-resi I have now. I'm planing on getting some resi for the front only as well.

The reason I'm asking is because I may go to the 5" lift in the future. If possible I'd like to only buy shocks 1 time. So if I can run the 4-6" now I wont have to change if I decide to go to the 5".

If you really want to be sure then it would probably be a good idea to measure compressed and extended height.

The shock bodies are longer on the 4-6 so they might not even fit, and if they did the shocks would be constantly compressed and ride like crap I would guess.
