Buying Shocks and Springs today

I'm doing a RC 2.5" Progression lift paired up with a Bilstein 5100 series shocks and buying my parts today. Are there any last minute details I should know about (i.e. additional parts to buy, steering stabilizers, wheel backspace)? I'll be running a 31"x10.5" tires with it.

97 2.5L TJ
RC 2.5" Lift w/ Bilstein 5100 Series Shocks, Adjustable Front Track Bar and Rear Bracket, Steering Stabilizer, 33x12.5 Duratrac, Cragar Soft 8s, Magnaflow Cat Back Exhaust and Catalytic Converter, 6-spk VDP Soundbar, Rampage Frameless Top, Kargo Master and Safari Roof Rack

what's the exact part numbers of the front and rear shocks you're ordering? that will help determine the compressed shock length - which will tell you how much bumpstop extension you'll need.
