Of course they do, mostly, but in a high pressure monotube shock, there is an additional offset force due to the design that will raise the height 1/4-1/2 inch or so depending on suspension geometry and motion ratios. Basically piston rod cross sectional area (sq in) times internal gas pressure in PSI.
