I think the oom needs to get a proper measurement, where he hits the bump stops and gets more than 40mm out of the rear.

As in,  don't fit a shock designed for a 3 tonne vehicle to a vehicle that only weighs about 1.8 tonnes  :jt:

The min and max length is what counts, and dont forget the damping force.. that will determine the ride comfort - to soft, and you will get sway, to hard and your false teeth will fall out.  Like Keith's Rancho, the damping was adjustable.. The ideal I would think.  As for the laden or not laden, the ride hight does not matter, just the damping force..a shock does not damp more the more it is compressed as it works by effectively forcing fluid though narrow openings.... just my 5 cents worth, and that from a novice.  :-[
