Bilstein Review

After looking through many threads on the bilstien 5100's I just kind of wanted an overall review on what you guys thought about them and the ride quality. Im thinking on getting them in the front and the in the rear and just setting the front to stock height for what i hope would be the best ride quality. My stock setup right now is just such a rough ride off road and im just looking for a better ride.

i just saw the stock trd bilstein shocks and struts (blue and yellow) for $250.00 brand new on craigslist. Im wondering if that would be a better deal then to get the 5100's online. I just want a better ride on and off road.

5100s are about $30 more and 10000000x better

I'm assuming yours is a stone stock reg. Tacoma, I'm not sure if the UCA's or LCA's are the same as the TRD So I can't say for sure if 5100's apply to you or not, I'm not even sure you could use the stock TRD Bilsteins, I'm curious let us know man...
