What shocks pair with 885 best?

I'm thinking I'm going to change out the spacer lift on my 08 DC trd 4x4 to 885s. I know in the rear the billys say they are for lifted trucks and the fronts are adjustable. But what other shocks like icon or fox or any of those I always read about are meant for lifted trucks? Do the shocks need to be longer than just my ome shocks? Because right now they bottom out in different situations while driving. Or will they be the same length but just right better due to it's aftermarket stuff? Thanks for any help JUSTIN

I just installed the OME shocks with the 885s.
I like it.

From what I have heard the OEM 9000s are valved for the springs, so I believe they are the best bet. I have them they ride really well.

I've got the 885s with the OME 9000. I really like the setup.

I have the 884s with top plate and the OME 9000s, rides perfect for my taste.
