You can fit landcruiser 80 series shock up front that generally have longer travel.

Superior engineering cruiser fronts largest i found were 776mm-450mm (12.8").
Longest patrol rear 827mm-490mm(13.2").

The only other measurments i have are ironman.
Cruiser front 736mm-420mm (12.4")
Patrol rear 760mm-466mm (11.5")
But the also do a shock to suit 8" lift for front and rear.
Front 860mm-492mm (14.4")
Rear 860mm-516mm (13.5")

Haha just re read your post and are looking for 14 and 16 inch shocks not 12 and 14.
Im pretty sure i head that ironman will make what ever length you like.

I think the patrol front end will struggle to use all the travel of a 14" travel shock, everything else will be binding before that.

A guy I know was running the 14 front and 16 rear in his wagon and getting full flex, I'm going the same set up as him with the big shocks, 4link conversion and xlink.
This is his car

to be of any use your going to need to do some serious geometry work to make that in the slightest bit useful.
But seriously for that kind of travel just put coil overs in it. your going to need to mod all the mounts anyway unless your running a 7" lift just to have any kind of uptravel.
