1) figure out the end styles/sizes
2) figure out how long you want them
3) buy shocks of correct length with correct ends

That what I did, I figured out what length compressed and extended I needed, then went to Bilsteins website and got the model number that matched those specs and bought them.

Since you used shackle extenders, you can use shock extenders.
