steering stabilizer question

i bought my sexcursion with a dual steering stabilizer on it but not sure what shock length to use to replace it with. both shocks are leaking and blown out. i am about to install a 6 inch lift and the shocks it came with have about 15k. can i just use those?

i bought the kit from bds suspension but the did not offer a fox shock for a steering stabilizer. at the time i didnt know the stabilizer was bad or i would have bought the shocks they sold to replace them. where do i get fox shocks for a steering stabilizer? i will just use my shocks i have for now until they come in.

so the way i read it is that if i use a shock for a steering stabilizer it would cause the truck to pull to one side because a shock is designed to rebound. but if i have a dual stabilizer i would think it would cancel itself out or am i wrong?

Just buy steering stabilizers, they are cheap.
