Default AAL means 4x4 shocks in 2wd?

hey folks, question for ya...

if I do AAL in the back of my 2wd ranger should I get 4x4 shocks ? or still 2wd shocks? the AAL will raise it an inch or two right? so that puts me in 4x4 territory?

rule of thumb: go over 2" past stock, get longer shocks. If your springs are saggy, remember thats lower than stock, so keep that in mind...

yeah my shocks are bunk, gonna get new ones. I was going to get 4x4 blocks to put in but I filled my truck with wet snow the other day and it bottomed out so hard. will 4x4 shocks still work well at 2wd stock height?
