Did you put on the shocks yourself or have it done? Shocks have nothing whatsoever to do with an engine running but maybe a fuel pump wire was jostled or pulled while installing them. Turn the key to 'run' position and listen for the fuel pump to prime for a sec or two. No sound means no power to the pump. If car turns over but doesn't start, I'd look there or else maybe a plug wire if it was up front. Something besides the shocks is at play, I think.
