Default Coil spacers, need longer shocks?

I just ordered a add-a-leaf and 2 inch coil spacer lift kit and Was wondering if I can run the standard length shock with the spacers. I'm aware that it probably won't have full flex but will it drive ok?

Its probly in your safest bet to get new shocks but I just did the same thing to my truck and kept my standard shocks. I dont notice any difference in the way it drives and rides.

might destroy your shocks then you'll be riding on just coils (stiff as hell and bouncy)

I know this is an old thread, but what did you decide? How'd it work out?

they also make shock extenders that mount whereyou wouldd normally tighten your shock up. i did a 2 in block on my front end and the shocks are maxed out but it rides as good as it ever has.
