Shocks...which ones?

So with my spindle lift up front i can run normal sized shocks right? travel has not chnaged if im correct...

For the rear the distance between shock mounts has changed...so i would need longer shocks there....correct?

I was looking at some bilsteins...what are some good prices on these, i found some on ebay for trucks with 3-6" of lift...

And then normal ones...

Also are those good prices?

Or do you have any other suggestions?

Thanks.

Spindles change NOTHING about the geometry of an a-arm ranger. The only thing that will change the geometry is a t-bar crank.
