5100 rear shocks on stock leafs?

i bought a 96 taco and the guy who sold it to me put procomp shocks on the back suspension the thing is they are way to long so my rear end jumps and bounces alot on any little bump. my question is will 5100's fit on stock leafs or will i need to get an aal? i want to stay stock suspension for now cause i cant lift the front any time soon also my leafs are stock still but i just want to solve this bouncy back suspension
heres a pic

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

i would get 5125's from DSM. the 5100's r still kinda long for stock leafs. The 5125's come in a bunch of different sizes and DSM found which ones fit best for stock height on 1st gen tacos.

the OEM 5100 replacements would fit just fine.

the 5100s are just performance shocks for 0-1 inch of rear lift...

Running 5100's and love them!

I think the previous probably removed his lift when he sold the truck but left the lifted struts.

The 5100's will fit fine. Shoot a PM, or give a call to Downsouth Motorsports, and talk to Sonny, or Marco, and they will set you up.

they dont fit, they mount up differently than the 1st gen trucks, you're better off calling DSM and getting a good set of rear shocks, or just wait until i put my 5150's on and you can have my semi-used monroe's

Sonny at DSM will recommend the 5125's if you dont have a lift in the rear. thats what he did for me. Thats what he is running on his 1st gen also.
