Default Using Rancho Lift Shocks On Stock Suspension?

I was wondering, would I be able to use Rancho Lift Shocks on my stock suspension on my 4.0L 1994 Ranger, I plan on lifting my ranger in the future, and I'd like to replace my factory shocks with Rancho's sometime soon, but I'm unsure if I can use lift shocks on my stock suspension? Because I'm no sure if the lift shocks would bottom out when the suspension flexes. I know I'd have enough extension, but not sure of how much compression.
