longer shocks

I have 2.5" lift on front axle and 1" on rear axle. I want a shock 1-2" longer and black in color, any ideas? Auto stores are a joke now a days, if its not in the computer they give up.

What kind of 2.5" lift is it?

I agree with Bilstein 5100s, and you can spray paint them black. Very good shock. Let me know what kind of lift you have (i.e. mini spring pack, hanger and shackle, etc..) and I can set you up with the correct shocks for your truck.
