Difference between rear stock trd bilstein hd shocks vs rear bilstein 5100

I know the 5100s will give me a smoother ride but are there any other differences? Are they as duarable as the HDs?

Are the 5100s longer, to give greater droop travel?

The difference is that I actually enjoy going over speed bumps now because the feeling of the plush travel is so absolutely buttery smooth

The 5100's are about twice as beefy as the TRD stock Bilsteins.

5100s give more travel and there valving gives a much better ride. And yes, there way beefier than stock TRD Billys

OK, so I hate to sound uneducated about my shocks but.... what is on my 2010 DC Sport? I know they are Bilsteins but are they HD? some Toyota special order? 5100s?

If I have HD shocks and the 5100s give a bit softer, smoother ride then I'll get 5100s. or something else based on input from TW.

Thanks
Hutch

I HAVE 5100S IN THE FRONT BUT CONTEMPLATING PUTTING THEM ON THE BACK WHEN I MOUNT MY NEW WHEELS WHEN THEY COME IN. i TOO WONDER IF IT IS WORTH IT. i HAVE A CANOPY ON THE BACK OF MY SPORT DC. SO THE RIDE WILL BE SMOOTHER.

EXPLAIN SMOOTHER. IS THIS SOFTER OR STIFFER? I HONESTLY FIND MY TRUCK A LITTLE SOFT.

I JUST WANT TO JUSTIFY ME GOING TO BUY THESE. PLS TALK ME INTO IT OR OUT OF IT WITH SOME BETTER INFO.

I'D LIKE TO HELP YOU OUT BUT I DON'T KNOW FOR SURE WHAT THE DIFFERENCES ARE. I'M SURE THE 5100 SHOCKS ARE VALVED A LITTLE STIFFER.
