bilstien 5100 install, good idea?

I recently purchased a 2003 4x4 trd xtr cab v6, it has a blown front shock so I started serching for replacements. having heard of the 5100 series I was very intreged about the lift capabilities, but I looked on the bilstien site and they were not available when I put in my vehicle specs. when I looked them up through toytec they were available. does anyone have any idea if I would be able to run the 5100 as they would be the cheapest option to replace all the shocks and also lift the front enough to remove factory rake. It is my new daily driver, so ride quality is still at the top of the list, but also want to be able to take it out in the desert. any input would be much appreciated.

Yup. Try downsouthmotorsports.com as they have the cheapest 5100s and offer discounts for tw members. Just make sure you get ones for a 1st Gen.

They are great. Use the search button for more info. There's probably 10,000 members on here running them, and probably the same amount of threads started asking about them.
