how are you mounting them? stock location, or a bedcage?
what is your rear suspension set up? 100% stock? stock with lift blocks? deavers?

So you have a factory block with another block stacked on top of it?

i would replace the rear leafs before i blew the money on shocks. stacked blocks are not safe andd would ruin those nice shocks if one fell out.

what kind of leaf sprigs would you recommend. im going with the camburg 6.0 pro in about 2-4 months and im thinking of putting the front fox shocks that i have in the back. also would it maintain the same lift property as the block.

Also when you go to get new shock droop your susp out measure it then compress it all the way and measure, those numbers are your col/ex lengths. Most Fox/ Bilsteins have those numbers posted. Like this

Travel Length....... Extended Length....... Collapsed Length
10" Stroke.................25.93"..................... .... 15.91"
12" Stroke.................29.70"..................... ....17.91"
14" Stroke.................34.90"..................... ....20.75"

so if i was to get something with a 16'' travel on the leaf would i have to get a shock with 16'' of stroke?

Not really it all depends on how much it droops and collapses

Got it I'll jack up the rear and measure the distance from the top of the leaf to the hard stop that should give me an indication of my travel then to be on the safe side I'll get a shock with 2-3 inches extra on the stroke. Does that sound about right?

You want to measure eye to eye on the mounting points of the shock. Take the old shock out lift one side up till you get to the bumpstop (col length) and measure then on the otherside it will be at full droop measure eye to eye there (ext length).
