I have run both, and both are good shocks but the bilstiens are better, and with stock length shocks and a 2inch spacer, your right at the limit of travel, too big a bump will hyper extend the shock, and of course ruin it.
as a test after your leveling block is in, drop the shock i the hole, instal lower bolt, now instal upper shock tower, with the shock fully extended you can see or measure the distance between the lower part of the tower and the frame, you will be lucky to see 2inches of room, that will pretty much convince you to go with the longer shock
kyb does not improve the ride as much as bilestein does
