shocks

How do you know what size shocks to use? I know it depends on lift and suspension travel, but there has to be a way to just measure on your vehicle or something. What about compensating for mods such as Revolver shackles, which don't add lift but increase suspension travel? I don't want shocks to be the limiting factor in my setup, but I haven't decided what kind of lift to go with yet. Is there some sort of rule of thumb to use when purchasing?

I just lifted my Jeep and the old shocks at 18" extended were too short.
Measure from stud to stud and get a new shock that has that length in its midrange.
My stud centers were 19" at rest, so I bought some Ranchos that range between 11.5 and 26.
