Default Length of shocks

I am looking for measurements on Associated Shocks.

I need something that is around 3.5 inches long mounting hole to mounting hole when fully extended. I would like associated or Ofna shocks but have no clue where to find shock lenghts assembled.

If some one knows were I can find a chart I will go look at what I am looking for myself.

Thanks for anyone that can help me out.

Thought about that too Jason.

What I have is a Hyper 7 I am converting to a Dirt Late Model. I have made custom front shock towers and havent been able to come up with a shock body that is short enought. Putting stops in is not my problem right now the problem is the shock body is too long and it will not allow the the arm to swing up high enought. Right now the shocks are bottomed out. So they will not work. So I need something with a shorter body. That is why I was thinking like associated front which I think came in two sizes. A .89 and like a 1.02 lenght. That is what I am looking for. Cause when you take a 1.02 double it then add in the ball end and the cap I should be real close if not think the rears on the older cars was like a 1.23 that might even be better.

I have also been looking on ebay for a set of shocks there is a Company called Blue Star and they have shocks. Thinking of trying them as they are not to expensive.

Thanks for the input Jason. I do appericate the thought.

If you need something a little more beefy the guys around here that run late model 1/8th dirt oval are using the shocks and some other parts from the Kyosho 1/8th rally car.
