If your fitting super lows, then yes, definetly. King super Lows need a shortened body shock at the rear.

you can get away with stock shocks but they will prematurely die due to being in a semi compressed state all the time

shocks arent expensive...you can get rears for under $100 each for decent ones

Its not that they die from being perm. Compressed : All shocks are like that in their natural state. The problem is that on the rears the Shock continuously bottoms out, damaging the shock and killing it quickly. It also affects your ride/handling.

You dont have to, but its a good idea to get them done at the same time. Saves having to pull out the springs again to change the shocks at a later date.

You want short stroke shocks, pedders makes some decent and well priced ones iirc.
