I've already given multiple solutions in the other thread.
See again:

1. Buy a measuring tape. Take the following measurements:

Ok, so you appear to have decided to buy shorter shocks. Now go back to the other thread again and read what I've said twice now:

call up DPG Off-Road:

This means buying about 3" of bumpstop extension and referencing that picture above. You need both measurements to be the basic subtraction and find out how much bumpstop you need. Buy that much length in bumpstop extension and install them.
