How about shocks on a 1" level?

I have the parts number Freeze gives people for a 2" level, but I'm not entirely sure my trucks leveled 2". If I were a betting person I'd say its something closer to just an inch.



Looks like my lower control arms are just slightly angled down instead of straight.

Anyways, my problem is I have stock height Monroe Gas Magnum, and thats the only height I can get for monroe without just knowing of an inch or two longer. And these bottom out when I hit a pothole and go THUD

So fine I'll considering paying... 150 bucks to replace my shocks that are fine, but will the 2" longer Bilstiens be too long?

Im running the bilstiens that are supposed to be stock for my 05 QC with a 1.5 inch lift. I have problems. It rides like a champ.

Thanks for the answers guys, however since I put 285/70s on I guess my suspension has less pay in it because I've yet to have it bottom out the shocks. Since I'm a cheap SOB I wont replace them now. haha
