I bet member unbroken would be able to answer this.
If your stock shocks were keeping your truck from going lower, you would know it as your shocks would be bottomed out making for a very rough ride. On the other hand, the shorter shocks might work like limit straps, limiting the up travel of the rear end. But again in order for your springs to fall out, your rear springs would have to be fully unloaded from the trucks weight.
