Lifted Shocks 0-2.5" vs Stock Shocks 1990 YJ

Hi, Looking for clarification. I have 1990 jeep wrangler yj and looking for shocks. All the shocks specify 0 to 2.5" Lift. I don't plan on lifting the jeep. The original springs are in the jeep. Currently doing a frame off restoration. Can I install the 0-2.5" Old Man Emu (OME) shocks and maintain same height. 2nd Stupid Question, I have installed all new brake lines (stock) by installing the OME 0-2.5" OME lift shocks, do i then have to reinstall brake lines, etc that have 2.5" lift factored in. Basically I'm asking why the 0-2.5 lifted shocks. I want stock height.

The shocks won't lift the Jeep. You have to change/modify springs or shackles to do that.
0-2.5" is just saying those shocks will work from 0" of lift (stock height) to 2.5" of lift.
They will work fine for you, they'll keep the Jeep at stock height and you won't need to mess with your brake lines.
