04 Wrangler with Acos lift needs shocks!

I am new to jeeps and I purchased a 04 wrangler x last night, it has an adjustable Acos lift, when you hit a bump or go into a turn the rear of the jeep sways and kind of goes crazy, it's very unsettling, I started checking it out today and noticed the rear shocks are weak, they bounce and the passenger side rear really does, my question is does anyone know what kind of highway shocks would be good and how do I know how long of a shock to purchase? I went to one website and it asked if I had a 2, 3, 3.5 or 4 inch lift, how can I tell for sure what length of shock to buy?

you could remove one of the shocks and measure its extended and non extended length. Then call a few 4x4 stores and ask what shock would work for your application..also post some pics of the jeep.. and what tire size your running and we can guess the lift...
