WOW, did I screw up on my shocks?

I just realized that I bought Bilstein 5100 rear shocks from wheelers offroad without even checking if they fit my 1999 tacoma.

I am screwed? Or will I be able to make them fit?

I just saw you had 5 inchs of lift.... these will not work. They are only good for up to 3". You will have to look into 5125s and figure out how much travel you need?

If you have a body lift they might still work (like 3" suspension, 2" body)...tell us about your truck for starters

Why not just call wheeler's and ask them? I am sure they would be happy to assist you on getting the right stuff.

from the looks of your pictures it looks like they will work doesnt seem like you have a leaf spring upgrade and you have 0-3" lift coils in the front and from the looks of it looks like you have a body lift to get that total 5" of lift i think you will be fine unless you upgraded ur rear leaf springs and those are old pics im looking at....if your really unsure just pick up the phone and give them a call they are really helpful....
