Yes. You can run with factory, but it will limit your suspension travel. Longer shocks are recommended.

Its also possible that he will damage the shocks by bottoming them out if the correct bumpstops are not in place/the sway bar is disconnected will make this worse.

plain and simple, yes you need longer shocks for a 2" coil spacer lift. You also need bumpstop extensions equal to the coil spacer height (2" in this case).
