Do I need longer rear shocks with 1" blocks?

Guys-
Is it necessary to install longer rear shocks if I have 1" blocks in back?

My mechanic buddy thought I might but we installed the rear blocks without extended shocks anyway. Am I risking any damage or other issues?

Thanks

At just 1" you should be perfectly fine.

If really worried about maxing them out at full droop, buy 5100s and call it done.
