    NO way. They make an oem bolt in version. Unless you are going to use a LT kit then that is all you can run and you will have to get aftermarket uppers also.

    These are extended oem style from kings

    "extended" means a little over 6", like 6.5" or so

    anything more and it won't be a simple "bolt on" with the stock shock tower

    It's 2.5 body. I think they use an 8" body for basically a 6" shock. I think the specific measurement for stroke length is 5.5". Collapsed they are 16.7" and extended they are 22". Close to those numbers. The only way to use something longer is a full LT kit.

    The oem style from fox, icon, or king is what you have to pick from.

    Yes they will bolt in with uppers to allow for a little more droop if you went with the ext versions. The uppers will also help get your alignment back.

    Pretty tough. They pop up now and then and go quick. Usually go fro about $1000-1200. It's not much difference then just waiting another month to save a little more and buy new ones.
