Default Lifted 2wd Shock Question

Ok, so it has been awhile since I have been on here due to having family distractions. I am finally putting some more attention towards my truck. My question may have an obvious answer, but I have searched everywhere and I could not confirm. Anyways, I have a 2" lift shackle in the rear already installed and my question is if I do a 2" add-a-leaf kit or a 2" block will I need to replace my rear shocks with longer ones?

Also a follow up question, opinions on doing Add-a-leaf or Block for 2 inches?

Theres A real good chance that YES You Will have to change shocks to longer ones one way to find out is take the bottom of one shock lose and extend it fully after lift you should have a min of 3 inchs travel left on shock and seeing that you already have 2" lift my guess is its already maxed out and as for the blocks or add a leaf if it was me id use neither one id go with a 4 inch lift spring they keep the axle to driveline (pinion angle) set right
REMOVE THE LIFT SHACKLE OF COARSE AND REPLACE FACTORY ONE

Thank you for the response thunderhawk. I was unable to find 4" lift leaf springs for 2wd. Would you happen to know of a manufacture?
