go to bilsteins site, and look at the length measurements, take some reading on your truck, and select by amount of travel .

You are correct that neither Bilstein nor Fox make any SuperDuty specific shocks for lift taller than 6".

Like Jeremy said, Pure has quite a few of their shocks available for 8" applications.

It works, the shocks are just a little short and they have the tendency to top out!
