I know I'm totally lost with this whole 5125 thing now. DSM is it the the collapsed length on the 5100 just being longer. I had 8.5" 5150's and i just couldn't imagine having them on a stock truck seeing how little of the shaft was exposed on mine with a 2" AAL.

Per Bilstein Specs

Stock Replacement (Yellow Shocks)
BE5-2285(L) Ext: 19.61 Col: 12.80
BE5-2286(R) Ext: 20.28 Col: 13.19

5125 Series
BE5-6252 Ext: 21.54 Col: 13.58
BE5-6253 Ext: 22.50 Col: 14.06

5100 Series
BE5-D559 Ext: 21.60 Col: 14
BE5-D560 Ext: 22.50 Col: 14.6

We had a customer contact us who went out wheeling with the 5100s, no lift in the rear. He noticed he was bottoming out his shock (driver side). I contacted RCD about the issue, and they told us that the shocks are a too long for no lift. And that if you run them with stock suspension, the bump stops need to be modified. That is when we tried the 5125s on our "stock" 96 Tacoma 4WD, and they work perfectly.

I see so the D559 is the problem Good to know thanks for clearing it up.

The 5100 rear shocks (#D559 & D560) were just a little too long on the collapsed length, for a stock height truck. So we tried the 5125s in 8" & 8.6" on our own Tacoma, and found that worked better for a truck with no rear lift.

So....to the OP: If you received the 8" & 8.6" Travel 5125s, they will be too short for your 2" lift, and you will need the 5100s for that, not 5125s. If you have 3" of lift or more, you will need 10" or longer depending on the actual amount of lift.

DSM
I done ordered them yall better go back and put they are for stock height. But when I order them from your website the guy who I was talking to Marko wanted to know how much was I lifting the rear, I said 2". So I dont know what I will be getting. I order the 5100's for front and the 5125's came with them and no where on there it said the rear shocks were for stock height.

I thought they were a better shock and thought they were set up for 2" of lift in the rear.
