Shock question

Ok, Can I go with a taller shock in the front of my truck w/out having hoops? I know it sounds like a dumb question but since I had to soften my front end a bit my tires are rubbing on my fender wells and I've already trimmed the insides of them, I have a stage 4 system up front with those yellow and blue bilsteins, so can I go with a taller shock?

A shock won't give you the extra lift you are looking for. You are going to have to crank the T bars more or do hoops with coilovers.

The issue with longer shocks is that when you go into compression, they can bottom out and blow the shock. The same goes for the reverse. If you install a shorter shock, it won't lower your truck but it will cause issue when you go into flex and break it in half.
