Default What kinda shocks are needed?

I have a 2008 Ram 1500 Crew cab with a 3" level kit. Do stock shocks work or do I need larger shocks. I also must say I am running 305 55 R20 Terra Grappler tires.

That's what I thought but at the shop they said I didn't. Thought I would ask around before I bought new shocks. I figured the old ones were shot cause I can't drive faster than 5-10 mph on a dirt road without the truck sounding like it is hitting bottom with every bump. How do I go about finding out what size I need?

most of the shock manufactures websites actually tell you what you need
