That price of $200 sounds about right for all 4.

As for the longer shocks with the leveling kit and the blocks...it depends on how high you went. 2" leveling kit and should be fine with stock shocks. Any higher and you would want longer ones. For the rear you should be good unless you went larger than the F350 rear blocks. In that case you would also want longer ones for the rear.
