I think they go closer to 6-8inches up and down, but in your case, judging by the pics of your car (Very Nice, I might add!), what I would be most concerned about would be leaving enough room for them to compress, with about an inch left over. Measure from the top of your axle to the bumper on the frame as the car sits. I'd hate to see a hard bump or bad wheel hop put a shock into your rear seat!
