New Shock Concerns

So I recently added a 3" spindle lift, an AAL and soon chevy shackle. So i think at 20,000 miles it is time to replace my stock shocks. But I dont know if I should be lookin for. I am pretty sure I am going to go with bilstiens, but with my lift what will work? Could i get the ones that are designed for EDGEs and 4x4s, or will i need to look at something else?
Thanks,
Jutty

^ I dunno if they make a lift shock, but i would imagine that an edge or 4x shock would work. Just take some shock length measurements and compare to what you need and what you have.

yeah... i got my pro comps at 4 wheel parts and they have shocks made longer for a lift on a 4x2 ranger. mine are the stock size with a 2" lift all around and they are fine. but the longer shocks are made for rangers with over 2 inches of lift

4x2 xl/xlt have different shock mounts (front) from a 4x4/edge so they wont work without moding...

its not much, my truck is running on 4x4 shocks front and back, but the driver side front popped out on the bottom, i messed up the little bar that bolts on
