I'm looking into getting Rancho RS 5000's for my 97 AWD v8 EB. Their site gives me 2 options, one for a 1-2.5" lift and one for stock height.

If i'm doing a 1.5"- 2" WAR-153 shackle and tt lift will the stock height rancho shock absorbers still work without issues?
I'd like to order them soon so I have time next week to put em on. I'd be running stock height for a while until I save up to get 31" tires then doing the tt and shackle.

Appreciate the help.

You can run the stock height ones, yes.

I ordered the longer ones and installed them when I did the AAL and TT. I got maybe the 1". They seem to be working just fine.
