Ranger drop question

I have an 08 FX4 Ranger with the Rancho shocks. I was planning on lifting (did a 2.5" Torsion Crank and AAL) but it won't see any offroading so might as well drop. After taking the Add-a-leaf and lift block out w/ XLT U-bolts, will I need shocks from let's say a Sport 2wd?

Keep in mind I will be going to the motocross track with about 200lbs in the bed and a 6x10' trailer with about 350lbs of stuff (bike, pressure washer, parts, etc.)

Eventually I'll get a axle flip kit and front coils (if a 3" torsion drop isn't enough). Don't wanna go too low, just maybe a 2/3 or 3/4.

The shocks are my main concern... but would I have to change them since only the location of the axle is changed in the rear? From under the leafs, to over the leafs...

Some lift, some tires, and a winch
