Help ordering correct shocks (front & rear) for MarkMC 2.5"

BDS, ReadyLift, Smaxx... You name it, we know about it here.

Hello,

I was hoping to get some help ordering the correct shocks for applying MarkMCs 2.5" lift to the factory springs both front and rear. Vehicle is a 2002 GMC Envoy SLT 4x4 with MarkMCs 1.5" spacers both front and rear. I am looking to mount 265/70/r17 all terrains.

I am having a hard time figuring out what Bilstein 5125 shocks will be best for the rear with appropriate travel and valving for this setup?

I am also having a hard time figuring out what Bilstein shocks to get up front? I read a lot of people choosing Bilstein HDs up front but no other information.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Have you tried looking through some of the builds to see if anyone lists the part#'s they have used?

Hey Diacom,

Yes I have looked at other builds, I cannot find exact part numbers for rear bilsteins, but I was able to sort out some shocks.

For the rear, I am considering the Skyjacker n8030 shocks, because the rear requires a longer shock after lift (cannot sort out what bilsteins to get).
For the front, I am going to leave the shock stock, or consider bilsteins B6 4600 Series Front (24-103336). These don't have to be any longer than stock since the lift block goes on top of the assembly, so the shock remains the same length.
