No I got the diff drop because it was cheap and some folks on here recommended it. I did have a small vibe in the front passenger side but that seem to go away.

Will 5100's in the rear lift the back at all without an AAL? Depending on the valving/stiffness compared to the factory shock I would think they could.

No. Need either an AAL or block to lift the rear. The 5100s will allow for slightly more flex though, or so I'm told.

so why is everyone going with billy 5100's over OME, just want to know some reasons..

ps Nick, FINALLY get my truck back tomorrow, a little over 300 for axel, boot, and install/labor, i'm not including the 184.00 for the emu shock though, not bad though, could have been worse.

5100s offer a softer ride over the OME rear shocks, that is why many people choose the run them. Both are great shocks.

I'm running 1.5" Toytec blocks in the rear(until next week when I'm having a fifth leaf installed).I too was experiencing a nasty top out "thunk" with my stock rear shocks.I called Sonny at DSMS and after some discussion and measurements we decided on 5125's for the rear.....No more "thunk",rides like buttah!

Scott:

Just came across this thread again. I was un-subscribed. I wasn't ignoring you


Update on my shock setup:

I think my right rear 5125 shock is blown. It looks like there is a leak (see pic) and when I go over bumps, it sounds like there is no oil in the shock, it's making some funky noises..

In my opinion stay away from the shock extenders. I got half way through the installation and did not like them. Did not seem sturdy enough for me. I immediately put a set of rear 5100's on order with next day shipping. Another life lesson on doing things right the first time.

just curious, what discount are you talking about? i'm about to order at ToyTec aal and i'm a poor college student so every little bit helps.

I think it's the toytec discount code. Can't remember what it is but it's something like tacoma or tacomaworld I think. PM neubs and he'll let you know I believe.
