Need some shock help!

I have a 2005 F250 CCSB FX4 that I purchased used. I want to replace the current Rancho shocks with some Bilsteins. As far as I know my truck is stock and it sits pretty darn level. My question is this:

When I order the new bilsteins will i need to order anything special to keep the truck level?

What do i need to look for to provide you guys with better info if need be?

Looking forward to any assistance you can offer.

For a stock height truck or one that has a 2" leveling kit these are the shocks that you will want to use:

Bilstein 0-2 lift front 5100 shock absorber Ford F250/F350 4WD

Bilstein 0-1 lift rear 5100 shock absorber Ford F250/F350 4WD
