I'm not sure... You might have to go flex and see how you do. I am assuming you will need them.

But more importantly they prevent the shock from bottoming out too often and blowing out the shaft seals or breaking the bar pins.

X2 - As someone else said the shocks are longer than stock and they will bottom out if you don't extend the bumpstop. This could destroy your brand new shocks. I recommend extending the bumpstop. I think the spring spacer mentioned to regain the suspension travel you loose to the bumpstop extension.

I just installed OME Sport shocks and the OME steering stabilizer. WOW! What a difference ..... It's like a whole new vehicle. It's even quieter now that I don't have all the rattles. I'm sold big time.
