What shocks after torsion bar crank?

Just like the title, i cranked my torsion bars so im wanting to know what front shocks to use since the oem shocks are pretty much maxxed out to the top.

stock length, you don't increase your travel over stock by cranking, it just makes the front end stiffer so it doesn't sink so far down.

On mine I kept hearing the shocks banging at full extension after a dip. I removed the top nut washer and rubber spacer then added a 1/2" nut below the lower washer to space it up further then replaced the washer, rubber spacer and reattached the upper mount. No more noise. From bottom to top of the upper mount: 1/2" nut, washer, rubber spacer, A-arm, rubber spacer, washer, retaining nut. This effectively gave me another half inch of travel which was all I needed.
