That looks like its made for a truck. Find a part number/manufacturer and contact them to make sure its made for your car.

Obvious shocks not meant for your car are obvious. I don't know what they'll fit, but they certainly won't fit your car. I can tell you that they won't fit on a Jeep Wrangler (I'm in the middle of doing a lift kit on mine). And from the size, if they were for a Wrangler, I'd say they'd give my 4 door about a 4 inch lift.

If you could figure it out for your car, you'll end up with about a 12 inch lift.

Yea I would say for a truck for sure. If you look up 2.5 race runner shocks I think it will give you that shock and will tell you what it fits.
