Strange Coil over Shock Question

Just a quick question to anyone out there who might know. I am looking at the Strange single adjustable shocks for the rear of my car. They offer it in 5.88" stroke or a 5.00" stroke...

5.00 Stroke

5.88 Stroke
http://www.jegs.com/i/Strange+Engine...S5206/10002/-1

Which should I go with?

Well, not a direct answer, but you want the shock to be about 2/3rds of its stroke at ride height.

Thats going to be about 14.09" between mounts on the 5.00" stroke shock and about 15.56" between mounts on the 5.88" stroke.

Choose the one that will be at the right point at your preferred ride height with your mounting points.

The shock mounting kit I am buying is adjustable as well so I can move the shock up or down. Would either of these shocks work with the adjustability of the mount itself?
