I definitely have the 58646 on mine...which matches the part number listed on Monroe's site.

58643 is a fit as well. i bought mine a couple of months ago and are supposed to work for f-150s specifically, but are also secretly compatible with WKs lol

I think I remember reading about that a long time ago. Those are the ones that are slightly shorter, right? Makes the Jeep look more OEM instead of raising the rear by the couple inches like the 646's?

The MLL's for the F-150 are supposed to be longer than the WK MLL's

Wow those must be a pain to install. I practically couldn't get the mounting points far enough apart just installing the the 646's.

the 643's are better for lifted jeeps. I probably should have specified that at first.

Oh that makes a ton more sense in lieu of the more recent posts in this thread.

The 643's have an extended overall length of: 27.55" and the 646's have: 24.870"

The one thing i did notice was the spring rate difference between the two:

643 - 60 spring rate = firmer feel & longer shock [F150]
646 - 37 spring rate = softer feel & roughly stock length [WK/XK]

So like Lucas said, the 643's are more suited for a lifted WK, whereas the 646 are mean for stock height.

I would just concerned about the difference in spring rates between the two part numbers. Now im up in the air as to which ones to get.

Wow the 646's are classified as a "softer" feel than the 643's? I'm glad I went with the 646's then, because they already remind me of sport tuned suspension when unloaded and loaded. Too much harder and you might forego suspension dampening all together....

That being said, I like sport tuned suspension and love the MLL 646's in my WK. They're like a perfect fit for my driving patterns, which is mostly street use with occassional towing.

exactly... the higher the spring rate the firmer the spring.
