Quick suspension question

I have a 2005 Excursion. I have rear f250 leaf springs that I am gona do the B mod to them. I will also be running a 4" block in the rear. Can I use my Excursion rear shocks until I get longer ones? I won't be off roading for awhile.

You will be near the extension limit of the stock shocks. Compression (down) travel will be fine--it's rebound (up) travel that you need to worry about. Not using the proper length shocks is a good way to 1) damage shocks and/or 2) damage shock mounting brackets. Best to bite the bullet and do the suspension right from the git go.
