Bilstein 5100's after TSB

I just had the TSB completed for the rear leaf springs on my 2010 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner CrewCab TRD. The ride is much better and I can tell a difference.

As for the front end, it slopes. I expected this. So, I want to level it out and found that I can do so easily with a set of Bilstein 5100's (adjustable). Is this a good deal:

Comes out to $282 after discount. Do I need all 4 of them or just the front? Would I need to take them to a shop or could I change these with a good socket and wrench set?

That is the best deal you will find. Get all for, your rear will be even better with the 5100's. Stick by DSM, because they will stick by you.

The rears are fairly simple and straight forward to install with standard tools. You'll need a little more than the standard socket/wrench set for the fronts. You'll need a spring compressor which you can either rent from a place like advance auto or borrow from a friend. An impact wrench would make the project easier but is not required. There's a DIY write-up on here, I'd recommend giving it a read and seeing if it's beyond your comfort level. Also, you'd need to have a shop align your front end after the installation of the fronts (not required for just the rears).
