Shock Help!!

My lifted 01 dually 4x4 needs new rear shocks. Im going to go with rough country of rancho if I can. The truck is only used for on road driving. My question is I dont know how much lift I have so Im trying to get the right sizer shock. The shocks on the rear measure 26.5 inches eye to eye while sitting on the ground. I cant find any measurement info on the shock company sites.. Anyone have input on this?

I would be kinda iffy on rough country, but that's just me. I have a complete lift installed on ny truck and my shocks were shot after about 8 months. Mostly highway/city driving. They were also on the stiff side. Id look into the rancho ride control or bilstein. Just my $.02.
