Shocks with RR 2.25 lift gotta go

Hey folks.. been awhile since I've been on the forums..

I've had the RR 2.25 lift installed for about a year and a half now. I installed the lift with the shocks provided by Rocky Road.

These shocks are just too stiff for me and my passengers. I just don't get the time to do as much offroading I would like. The stiff suspension isn't practical for my needs. I'd like to install the original shocks I saved but I'm afraid they might be too short. Anyone know if they will still fit?

Can anyone recommend some shocks longer than OEM but with the same smooth ride? I see talk of Bilstiens and OME but I'm not sure if those are for 4x4 performance only.

I want to keep the cost very minimal.. thx

The stock shocks are long enough. I have had mine on for almost a year now.

The stock shocks are long enough for the 2.25" lift?

I'm running stock shocks with my RR 2.25 lift also. No problems.
