Default new shocks (help?)

I lifted the front of my ranger 2'' via leveling kit.
my shocks are pretty much too short now so I'm sure I need to
get longer ones. I'm just unsure of how long they have to be so
I looked around the forums to see if I could find out if anyone else
has leveled out their ranger and needed new shocks but couldn't find
anything. Anyone have any suggestions on figuring out what shocks I
need and where I would be able to get them? Thanks!

You should be able to talk to your local 4x4 shop or where you got the leveling kit from and they should be able to tell you what size you need.

I am not sure but I think shock from and F-150 should work as well, but don't take my word for it.

Shocks didnt come with the kit? Sky jacker shocks are pretty good, just order the ones for a two inch lift or any other brand that is for a two inch lift.
