Need a longer shock recommendation

I always figured my shitty flex was because I've been pretty much stock in the back with the exception of AALs. Had my truck up on a lift the other day and noticed my OME shocks are completely extended but the stock shackles aren't even hanging down all the way. Any recommendations for some longer shocks? The stock shackles (shown) were replaced this weekend with 1.25" lift shackles.

I'm running 10" 5150's relocated like / \ and I can fully droop the springs and still have shock left over. Really the only way to get full use out of your springs is to relocate your shocks. triangulated works great if you don't want to punch holes in your bed.

That's just about full droop with brand new Expos they flex out more now that they are broke in.

Thanks. Triangulating the shocks is one of the projects on my list. I'm wanting to find a decent replacement to get more travel for now until I can afford to get the relocation done.
I can't seem to find anything that gives any length info of all these shocks including the OME.

Yeah i don't know length info on stock replacements but I do know if you go longer in the stock location you will bottom out your shocks unless you extend the bumps.

Just save and do it triangulated, doing it in steps will cost more

Yeah I guess that's what I'll end up doing... know of any good write-ups to relocate the shocks?

How does the triangulation setup work for a DD? I commute in the city with my truck and don't want too much lean. I tend to drive fairly aggressive in the corners and everywhere for that matter.

Thanks!
