Getting shocks?s

I have leveling kit on my truck it is all spring. I am going to get new Bilsteines all the way around. I am not sure if i need extended travel for lifted vehicles. The front shock mounts are in the same position as they were before the level, due to all of the lift taking place under them. And the back I have not done anything yet I would like to go a inch or two ther. Help me order my new shocks please. Also if you have a factory stance truck can you rotate the shocks from corner to corner or is the front diferent from the back?

Thanks.

the fronts are different from the rear. Did you use a adjustable trac bar when you did your leveling kit? If not you should have. I have used Bil's, Rancho's KYB's and I found them all to be way to stiff, the best shock I have found for the Superduty are the Monroe Reflex shocks!!
