I have a set of 4 James Duff Shock. I was thinking about using these shocks with my shackles and spacers....would it be ok to use shocks for a 2.5" lift with a 1.5- 2" lift?

Also, if anyone reading this has a set of James Duff radius arm drop brackets for sale to use with the 2.5" lift.....Im interested. Thanks.

The fronts I know will be fine.. the stock shocks and shocks for a rancho 2.5" lift are the same.

In the rear, the shocks "might" be a little long.. What you worry about is them bottoming out.. Take the truck out and twist teh truck up.. If the shock is limiting the compression of your suspension, then it it too long for your suspeion.. but I doubt it would be in your application (but anything is possible).
