You shouldn't need to replace any hardware as long as it is good condition and not excessively worn and the threads are okay. I like to clean up suspension hardware with a wire wheel or brush and use a little anti-sieze during reassembly. Makes reassembly much easier. Not a bad idea to recheck the hardware after a few miles, either. Don't know what to say about the shocks being compressed other than it's probably how they're supposed to be. Rancho makes pretty decent stuff. On the boots, don't stretch them any farther than necessary to secure them on the tubes correctly. Probably no more than half an inch or so of boot on the tube and make sure the tie bands are good and tight.
