Any danger running different length shocks front and rear?

    My current Rancho 5000's are severly limiting my travel in the front and just ride like crap. I got a set of the ford towers and I'm planning on runnung the pro comp 15'' travel shocks up front. I've been looking real hard at the Diy4x inboarding kit, but my exhaust pipes are in the way so I'll have to get some shocks with about the same travel as the current 5000's.

    What would be the downside of running different length shocks front and rear?

    There is no downside. Its normal to run different length shocks front and rear.....The rear are longer from the factory anyways..
