I have Rancho 9000XL's and absolutely love them, adjust them down and she floats like a boat, turn them up and she corners like a race car.
I'm only leveled so my center of gravity is lower but the size ranges are pretty wide so you shouldn't have a problem.

I just need the installed length measurement bolt to bolt of the shocks with the truck on the ground, I like to insure correct fitment.
