I'm going to lift my Jeep wrangler and I would really like to use fox racing shocks which are for 4 inch lift kits, but I really don't need a 4 inch lift and they cost a whole lot. Would it work to use the 4 inch shocks with a 2.5 inch lift kit?

Not familiar with the exact application, but in general it's a bad idea putting longer shocks into lower vehicles. That's assuming that the left kits don't actually move the mounting points too and retain the same length/travel requirements.
In short no.Any competent 4x4 shop will tell you.Bear in mind big lifts raise centre of gravity which will impair stability particularly with a laden roof rack.
