This has been brought up about 4 million times, but if all you have done is changed the pre-load on the torsion bars you do NOT need longer shocks. In fact, if you ran longer shocks in front the balljoints and CV joints will bind. Which is why I keep recommending people not crank their torsion bars that much. The shocks are there, and short, to limit the suspension travel to prevent damage.
