Need new shocks

Im looking at buying some Bilstein 5150s but am not sure how long of shock to buy. Does anyone know what shocks I would need with a 6.5 inch lift?

What shocks are you guys running?

What year is your truck?

Are you dead set on the 5150s?
You'll get a better ride and warranty out of application specific 5100s.
Only downside with the 5100s is that you'll need to coat the body with something if they use road salt in your area to keep the body looking good.

Bilsteins from Truck Toyz. Had one fail, they sent a replacement to me over night at their expense. Great customer service.
