Nope. they should be fine where they are. I have several friends, and customers running the same Timbren rears and the LT rear shocks and no issues, although it's usually with a rear sway bar in place, which could also limit the uptravel. If you won't be running one, you may need to space them down a bit. It would be best to do a flex/travel test once installed and see when the bumps engage (before going offroad), and then extend the bump stops if necessary. They shouldn't need too much, if any.

The *575 shocks are 63mm longer at full compression compared to the regular *701 rear shocks (362mm comp), but a lot has to happen for them to hit full compression too.

I will be running a swaybar with extended links, it clicked in my head yesterday that my 100mm extended brake lines should just be enough as the standard rubber lines start to stretch at a extended length of 630mm. Ill be running a dual rate coil similar to the metaltech lt rear coil and i have fixed length offset lower linkages and adjustable uppers both on back order so i should be able to run the a575 shocks with out issue
