When I had my level kit which was 2.25" (front) and 0" (back), I had the following parts which were supplied by NorCal:
Front Fox 2.0 Shocks (part number 980-24-963)
Rear Fox 2.0 Shocks (part number 980-24-664)
Check those part numbers on Fox's web site and you'll see their lift recommendations are for 0-1", but they also supplied the shock extenders for the front shocks.

And by the way, these shocks came with NorCal's complete Stage 6 kit which included the Cognito UCA's, etc. The shocks however were stock length (or rather 0 - 1" lift) and just used shock extenders to account for the extended length to drop the from the upper mounting position by about 1.5".

Now, the 3" lift you have on the back is a new one on me... I might want to go for either the 4 - 6" rears shocks or modify the receiver brackets on the axle or... you have to ask someone else on that. HmmMMmm

have my tbars cranked way up and stock shocks are shot all the shocks i looked at seem really short that are made for a leveling kit i found some that are supposed to be for a 6 inch lift ....
Collapsed: 13.37
Extended: 22.18

so if you say
stock extended is -18.61
stock collapsed is-13.17

then those should be perfect right?
