Default Shocks question

I need to buy rear shocks for my '01 1500 4x4. The previous owner put a 3 inch lift in it, so I need to know what shocks it will need. I'm guessing it's too high for stock height replacements? They're rusted pretty bad so I can't tell what they are. What are some decent shocks for my truck? I'm not really an off-roader, but I tow occasionally. Thanks

I have Monroe Load adjusting shocks on my 05 ram. I have the front leveled to the rear and the work great. They are towing shocks, when I put them in they were about 2 - 2.5 inches longer than my stock shocks so I had to compress them some to get them on. The shocks are stiffer and they are coil over for extra support while under load. It helped a lot with the sagging in the back when I hook up to my travel trailer which has a dry weight of 5900lbs and when I load it down its about 6200-6500lbs. They may work for you but they are kinda high in price. It was 131.00 at advance auto for a pair. I will measure out the length of my stock shocks and add the 2inches onto that to give you a pretty close measurement. Compare your measurement if that length to your length of the shocks that are on there when they have no weight on them and see what they measure out to. If those wont work look for shocks that have the same measurement.
