What size shocks with an All-Pro 3in leaf pack?

I'm looking to upgrade my crappy rear suspension to All-Pro's standard duty leaf pack, and I was wondering what size/stroke shocks I would need. Any advice/help is appreciated, and suggestions are always welcome.

FYI
my front suspension is Camburg 4in spindles with Bilstein 5100s set at 0.85 with stock TRD off road coils. :rear suspension is 1.5in block. I know I know...blocks are shitty so please keep the block comments to your self.

straight from all pro since i called them regarding the same thing:
you need 9" bolt on shocks
if your getting different shocks that require the stem to eye converter you will need an 8" shock because the converter gives an inch. thats for the standard pack not the expos

Call Sonny at Downsouth Motorsports. I have AllPro Expo leafs, and they will set you up with the right shocks, Expo or Standard!!

Very much appreciated! And BTW your truck is looking really good and has come a long way since the first time I saw it when I joined in January.
