Shock Outboard help!!

Okay Well 1st off Hi Everyone! im new to jeep forum but not new to jeeps! ive owned my 06 rubi for 3 years now and im obsessed! never endng list of mods lol..

Anyways ive been doin alot of research on shock outboarding and spring relocating and i plan to pull the trigger this summer. i wheel about 3 times a week but other than that shes my DD. im doin it for the increased clearance/ travel and handing that comes w/ these two mods. i have a 3.5" RE superflex lift and plan to throw in some bilstein 5100's on each corner at the same time as the outboard.. my main concern is how long of a shock is possible w/ this amount of lift w/o unseating the coil in the rear? i plan on going w/ the Poly Performance kit.

Thanks guys!

I'm not real familiar with those springs, but 5" up and 5" down is where you want to be. Shoot for that.
