not sure how you guys are measuring the shock lengths, but as long as your new shocks aren't shorter than the orignal shocks you should have no problem with shock length and calmini uca's.
Now I'm confused as well, there might be a difference between the older navs though? My current shocks as I said are too short for a 2" lift and they are about 30mm longer than the original.
Mate of mine was in the same boat as me, and he got Clamini shocks after we discovered the ome ones are too short, and his rides like it should.

yeah rough measurement would be great. so your running the cal ucas on your nav yeah? and thanks for the reply
Hey mate,from the top of the manual hub it is 560mm. Thats with the torsion bars wound up to a 12mm gap to the bumpstops.

what yr D22 is yours? The only reason i can see for so many differences between everyone is that the newer D22s need longer shocks where as the older ones dont, Guess the question is what yr it all changes, i assume this is why some companys advertise 3" shock and others say they dont need them.

Fuel to an old thread,,, I have the 2" snake U.C.A and are having issues with left wheel alignment!

I am thinking of adding 12mm to 25mm ball joint spacers to help with the alignment and was curious about shock length also... I currently have the Tough Dog all round but thought with near 80000ks on them I'll replace them when I do the frond end service for W.A..

I want to do the drag link upgrade so I'm planning a big one, lower control arms etc tie rods, steering box adjustment and flush..

I was thinking of grabbing some 3" shocks to allow for droop! I have the diff dropped and plenty of play so I'm guessing 3" won't do any harm if she's not wound up to full hight.... I have the H.D T.B fitted already.. thoughts?
