load adjusting shocks Sign In

2006 mazda 2300 I am looking to put load adjusting shocks on the front of my truck. Theydo not make them for my truck but i found some that are the same size except the travel is different. 3/4 an inch more compression and 3/4 in ext. Does this matter and will it hurt anything else using these. thank you

Yes, it will probably cause them to bottom out, along with the valving likely being different.

If your using the shocks to level the truck .It will affect handling and cause damage , the shock mounts are not designed to support the weight of truck.
