Default 03 f150 supercrew with 3 inch level kit

With the 3 inch level kit, will the factory shocks be long enough or will you need to buy shocks that are 3 inches longer as well? Ive had sum people say you can run the factory ones and others say you need the longer ones? Anyone who might have this kit an could let me know. Id be very thankful for the help.im new to this site an new to lifting trucks. Just trying to find sum friendly answers an help. Thanks for any help u could advise! Also how level will this sit the truck? Id like the truck to be sitting nice and level front to back.

Thanks, the company thats selling this kit, told me i could use the factory as long as im not out really ruffing it through big holes an etc. My supercrew is also 4x4 so it wont sit higher in the front like 2wd do. I geuss ill order the kit an if need the shocks, i can always go through my account at work through advance.

Yea I'd get the kit and try it and if u decide u want the shocks it wouldn't be that hard to put them on afterwards
