1st gen 2003 single cab tacoma, SHOCKS

The girlfriend has an 03 single cab 2.4L 4cylinder 5speed taco. The shocks are gone and I want to replace them but I don't know of a good replacement shock for that model; I wanted bilstein 5100's but I think they only come in the prerunner versions.
Whats a good replacement shock for that truck besides blowing a grand and doing c/o's. I'd like to see some better options before just replacing with OEM parts.

ah right on thanks man. Bilstein is what I would stick with also, she doesn't offroad but i'm gonna get 235/75r15 tires so the billys will handle these much better and the truck being so small and light these will be more than enough.

bilstein 5100's from downsouthmotorsports.....................awesome customer service and they are a vendor here.

you can leave the fronts at stock height, and they still ride tons better than regular bilsteins.
