Rancho shocks too long??

I bought some Rancho RSX9000 shocks for my stock height F250 CC. I was having the tire shop install them and the guys swears they are made for a lifted truck and that he would have to collapse them all the way to bottomed out to make them fit.

has anyone used these on a stock height truck?
I contacted the vendor I bought them from and they said they're for stock ride height, but I have not contacted Rancho yet. Is the guy at the tire shop completely wrong?? He's saying they are physically 4 inches longer than the stock unit. Or at least the tube is where the piston goes into.

801-RS999254
801-RS999044

these are the numbers one is front one is rear.

who did you buy them from? they dont know what they are talking bout

VEHICLE HEIGHT FRONT P/N REAR P/N
2.5-in. RS999043 RS999254
4-in. RS999044 RS999261
5 - 6-in. RS999048 RS999045
Stock RS999042 RS999254

they gave you the right rear shock but a front shock for a 4" lift... the correct stock front shocks is a rs999042

thanks brother you are correct. I ordered them from Jegs and they're site is mis-leading they don't discern between stock heights and lifted so basically Jegs is shipping out the right part (42) and covering the shipping etc. Just a little more time is all. Frustrating but no worse for the wear.
