I need help with shocks!

I am working on installing my shocks. I took out the old rear shocks and they were quite a bit longer. I extended the new shocks and laid them on the ground side by side and the new shocks are 3-4" shorter then the old ones.

When I installed the new ones the shock is almost completely expanded just to hit the mounts. There is at most another inch of travel before it is maxed out. I think they sent me the wrong shocks.

If anyone can cross reference the numbers that would be great. They are Procomp ES3000 Part Number 322508. I have a 2004, 4WD with no lift.

I didnt want a gas charged shock. Hydrolic filled shocks give a better ride on the highway....which is most of what I do.
