Maximum lift with stock shocks?

I've done some research but can't quite seem to find the answer I'm looking for. I found a set of 2" lift front coils and a set of 2" coil spacers for the rear for $50 on Craigslist! In a perfect world I'd go out and buy a set of Bilstein 5100's and be set, but ya know, that whole not having money thing sucks. Question is, will my stock shocks still work with a 2" lift?

Thanks for any input

I'm running a 2" BB with stock shocks (I bought it that way). Its a rough ride, but I think that has more to do with the shocks having 125k on them and giving out. Should be fine...

Alright, well thanks. That's convincing enough for me.
