Your leveling kit will make no difference from stock. Meaning there are not special 'longer' shocks needed. Your stock shocks are basically crap as they do not have the full travel they should, so this would be the only example of needing a different shock. If you were to go over a big speed bump, kinda-fast, with your leveling kit & those stock shocks, you would feel the system fully extend to the point where the stock shock actually limit the travel of the suspension. Not good. Just about EVERY replacement shock out there will eliminate this deficiency. Recommended brands? Many, as most will be far superior to what you have now: Bilstein, Monroe Reflex, Rancho RSX or 9000xd, Rubicon Express monotube, Pro Comp, Edelbrock Performer IAS...
