Lift rear and new shocks

I want to replace the shocks and I want to slightly raise the rear of the truck. What shocks should i go with, would shocks give me the lift in the rear i want. I am looking for maybe 2inches or so. If not then i want something that would easly be installed. My truck is a 2001 250 cc sb

i dont think shocks are gonna do it for ya, they're not designed to give lift. get a different lift for the rear or add some blocks.

Add-a-leafs would be the way to go to get a little bit of lift in my opinion. They're a pretty easy install and not too spendy. Like the others have said, shocks aren't going to make that much difference in the heighth of the vehicle.
