Longer shocks for rear

Well my b day is coming up and im about to sell my old dirt bike so im going to have some more money to blow on the taco!...thinking about getting some spindles to give it about 5'' in the front and wanted to get about 3-4 in rear. I was looking at bilsteins 5100s but they are only for 2.5'' of lift. Is there like a shock extender or anything you could get? not wanting to spend over 200

if you're looking into extended 5100's just give sonny and marco (DSM) a call, they'll tell you everything you need and go over what fits your budget shock-wise
