new shocks

have a '96 f250 regular cab long bed with a 4" rough country suspension lift. anyways...i found a set of procomp es9000 nitro shocks for my truck at an incredible price. given i put this lift on over 7 years ago and do plow and haul with my truck...i figure theyre about due to be changed. however...it says for stock lift on the website. fronts have collapsed length 13.71" and extended length of 22.58". rear has collapsed length of 14.82" and extended length of 24.84". my question...can i use these on my setup? or do i need to find some that have a longer extended length? not concerned with the compression of the shock...but know with the lift i take the chance of over extending them...just curious if i really will. anyone know? and thanks again for the info

Go on ebay and search bds shocks. Place in MI selling front and rear for 200. Free shipping. Its an additional 20-30 for whatever color boots you want. Just put them on my truck. Amazing ride.
