    I'd assume they'd come with the 10" travel 5150's.

    The shocks that come with the kit are 5125s, but you can upgrade to 5150s. Both are 10" iirc
    I'm running the 5150s

    All are valved the same, but the 5150 has a piggyback resi, to keep the shock cooler
    they're the right length for the leafs, I've run the 5150s with aps shackles and those didn't bottom the shock out either

    You can use pretty much any shock as long as its long enough.

    The higher end shocks allow custom valving if you want to make the shock handle the leafs sifferently; I'm fine with the stock valving of the bilsteins cause I don't do any high speed des stuff
