The place selling you the shocks should know the answer to that question or else you should buy your shocks from a more knowledgeable seller.

To measure for your shock lengths, flex your suspension with no shocks installed and measure the distance between the shock mounts with the suspension full compressed, and fully extended. The measurements you take are used to determine the shock lengths needed for your lift. Choose your shocks, and then locate the shock specifications chart that most shock manufacturers publish or list on their website.

When measuring flex, make sure you have the correct bump stop length for your lift installed. Bump stops prevent contact between the tires and fenders, and prevent shock damage from bottoming out the shocks compression stroke.

You can use the chart below to find the approximate shock dimensions needed based on lift height.
