Will this shock also work on my 1952 M100 trailer?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Yes, I do believe they are the same one used.

Is the front shock longer or shorter than the rear on a CJ5?

Willys Tech:
The rear ones on a CJ-5 are longer extended.

Your picture shows shock 8133290A is blue in color which is odd for a M38A1. Is there a reason it's blue and can it be painted?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
That is what color the manufacturer paints them. They can be repainted. We have OD green paint too.

do I need to order replacement grommets when ordering new shocks (52 M138A)

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
They come with the shocks.

Will these shocks work with my CJ that has a 2 1/2 inch body lift?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
If you have just a body lift, then the shocks should not be effected by it so yes.

I ordered the 8133290 for my 1968 cj5 just for the front, I think I messed up, the book calls for the 8133290A will this shock work on my jeep and what is the difference ?

Willys Tech:
The A is an interchange number. They are the same.

is this for one or two?

Willys Tech:
These are each.

who makes this shock?

Willys Tech:
These are the proper Monroe gas shocks.
