Shocks?? shock extension bracket?

Question: Upgrading to bilstein shocks all the way around with a readylift stage 2 kit.... I am wanting to know if I'd be better off buying a longer shock or buying the bilistein 5100 at normal height and continue to run with the shock extension bracket. There shouldn't be any difference, right?

You can get the 5100 series for the 0-2" of lift and run them either way. We just did a kit here and used the shock extensions ReadyLift provides.
