Shocks after lift

Anyone know different shocks that will work when I lift my front end with a coil spacer? Morgan told me ProComp ES9000 will work. I was curious if anyone knew of some other ones? Like Monroe or something? Think if I went to the auto parts store and told them that its for a Ranger and I lifted it 2 inches that they could figure out what kind of shock I needed?

I had Rancho's off of a chevy. They were stiff because of the weight difference but also because the ones I got were too big for my lift.

You can try at the auto parts store or try shocks from a yota. Its about the same weight.

Good to know. Reason I was looking at Monroe is just cause they are usually a little cheaper. I've had them on my trucks in the past and they were fine. I figured if I found someone that actually knew what they were doing at the parts store maybe they could help me figure out what size I need. I figured for the back I could just get shocks from a 4x4 Ranger since it would be the same.
