    No, you shouldn't have to get longer shocks. If you do get longer shocks, it would add more articulation, but you shouldn't need them.

    Adding longer shocks would depend on a lot of other factors but the add a leaf may be the last straw so you may need longer shocks. You may also need longer ubolts, measure them to make sure you have enough thread left.
    Thanks
