Truck is leveled and I need Shocks...

My truck has leveling shackles and I need new shocks, I was going to pick up some Monroe Reflex shocks but now I'm wondering if stock size shocks will work or if they will get damaged... what should I do? thanks.

Get the longer shocks. The last thing you want is to blow out a shock. They would probably work fine, but do you want to risk it? It's cheap insurance...

Well If I need longer shocks, how am I going to find the reflex shock that fits? I don't think the normal Auto part store will be able to figure it out ha. maybe Napa...
