Ditto on the stock shocks....
BUT...before you go out and buy...get everything installed except the shocks...then measure from bolt to bolt....then buy your shocks based on actual length....you basically want a shock that will give you about an equal amount of extension and compression. If you have a way of lifting the back you could lift it off the ground and see how far the axle drops...that would be your max extension....
FYI....shock lengths are kinda funny....when I put on new shocks for my SOA, just going 1/2" longer bumped me into a different range which ended up giving me 3" additional inches of travel.
