Shock question

Hey guys new to the forum. drive a stock 2000 sport 4wd.
getting a brand new set of bilstein 4600 shocks from a local guy and a new in box mopar spare tire carrier.

question is the shocks are listed as 80-86 cherokee only here is the link to them.

https://norfolk.craigslist.org/pts/d...625462356.html

i assume i could make the rears work by swapping the pin style bushing.
but the fronts would not work at all since it is a different style. is there any conversion for this or should i sell the fronts and get the correct ones.

thanks guys!

FYI JKS makes adaptors or you can make your own.

It lowers the top of the shock 1" more than the stock, stem-type shocks
