You dont HAVE to buy new shocks. It is highly recommended though. You will probably bottom out even on speed bumps. If you plan on going higher in the future, I suggest you save up more now and go for that. If you plan on just running a 2" for a long time, you should get shocks. Your call though

I bought the 3in lift spacers with shocks for $240. This is a great setup for me, and didnt have to mess with anything else. Though now I am looking for more, you'll get it too

I would get the shocks with the kit and do not go over 2.25" on the BB. Going with a 3" puck is a bit too much for the spring posts.
