Dredging this up to add some useful info I found for my '92 745 concerning shocks.

I already extended front strut tubes by about 2" and put the XJ springs in the back but the shocks are topped out and I'm just riding on the rear spring so I've been looking for shocks. I'm buying cheapo KYB's cuz it's just a beater. Here's what I've found; both of these options provide about 2" greater travel and an overall increase in length of about 3". Pretty good options I think. Only size difference is the they are more narrow at the mounts then stock. Gonna order the Saturn ones because they are $20 cheaper, will report back.

Stock- #344270
Upper mount- E2(12.2x54.8)
Bottom mount- E2(12.2x54.8)
Extended length- 18.46
Compressed length- 11.65

Saturn Vue ($32.79)- #343433
Upper mount- E2(12.2x42)
Bottom mount- E2(12.2x42)
Extended length- 21.65
Compressed length- 13.38

Land Rover Diso ($45.30)- #345037
Upper mount- E2(12.2x43.5)
Bottom mount- E2(12.2x43.5)
Extended length- 22.36
Compressed length- 13.89
