Proper shocks for modified rear

So im looking to upgrade my shocks because mine are shot. I got the front shocks but I'm having issues finding the proper size shocks for the rear. With the 8.8 and the shock mounts relocated my measurements from mount to mount is about 16in. Seems simple enough, however I want good shocks. I have the fox 2.0 (4 to 6 inch lift) for the front and I want something that is just as "capable" if you will. Also, I am using stock mounting locations with eyelet bushings. Any advice on proper size and or brands?

Dang. Not much room for movement. I dont think there are much options with such a small length. Sorry I can't help. As for brand I would suggest bilstien but I don't think they have anything worthy that will fit your requirements.

Your def gonna need remote reservoir shocks as they will provide the most travel in a smaller package.

When you want to be someone you drive a lifted JK, when you already know who you are you drive an old XJ.

Ya it's a pain. Maybe I'll cut the floor and fab up some hoops, that's just alot of work to get decent shocks lol.
