    What is the largest/longest size RS9000 shock that will fit in the stock location? I am not ready to step up to the F-250 shock tower mod. yet.

    I don't know the part # for that, but if/when you call in and ask for the RS9000s, tell them it's for a 6" K5 lift and they will get you exactly what you need. I think there is a chart somewhere on the net with part #s and it tells you exactly how long it is, etc. Just have to find it.

    Well the 9012 I think is the longest shock they make, and you can run it but if you flex the truck you will compress it and bottom it out........not good for the truck nor the mounts. By using the 9012 now you save having to buy them later. I would only do this if the F-250 shock tower mod was something you were planning on soon.
