Hey guys i was wondering if retaining the stock bilstein shocks fromt he ZQ8 package will be ok to run with a 5/6 drop? Ive heard it is possible and if so i dont want to drop 100 bucks or so on shocks if i dont have to. but if i have to then its ok.

just run them till they blow up!
I've run stock shocks on a 3" drop before no problems.
Wait i just saw your sig and it says you have a zq8 plus a 2/3 drop, so which is it? ZQ8+2/3 drop or a 5/6 drop? It would be a lot easier to answer after knowing that.

i think that a 5/6 with the v8 you are wanting to do might be too much. you'll be hitting skid plate and exhaust header(s) over bumps all day like i do with my 4cyl. and i have a friend with a 6 inch rear drop with bilsteins and i haven't heard any complaints.
