Yeah I see what your saying. I would just give it a shot though. You never know if you don't try!

I googled it and it seems to be that the 5125's are longer that the 5100's

Oh okay. Yeah cause I know the 5100's are only good for 0-2 inch's of lift. So if your planning on going higher then 2 inch's, you definetaly don't want the 5100's.

I have the 2" aal from Toytech in the rear and I still have the stock shocks. Some people say go with the 5100's, other say go with the 5125's. Nobody can seem to tell me why pick one shock over the other.

Of course, another question. Are the rear shocks the same length or is one side longer that the other?

They should be the same length. Just positioned in different locations.

i dont think the rear shocks are the same length

and i think the difference between 5100s, 5125s, and 5150s is the travel capabilities of each...you can order different sizes in all 3 but i think 5150s allow for the most travel and 5100s allow for the least amount

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

On the first gens, the passenger side shock is a bit longer. On the second gens, the shocks are the same legnth. I think the 5150's have a remote res.

Well man, there are lots of things to consider here. What you need to do is remove both your rear shocks, go somewhere to flex.
This is imperative so please dont just accept "yeah that autta work with your lift". Get as compressed on 1 side as poss. take measurement from bolt stud to bottom of stem ( if your 1st gen go eye to eye). This measurement is your compressed length. Then get into a position where the other side is hanging as far down as leafs will allow.Measure again. this is you extended length. NOW Ideally you want to have just a bit of travel left over on both measurements. so for ex fully compressed is 14 and full droop is 23. then you want to get a shock that 23.5 extended length and less than 14 compressed. BUT if that cant be found then you want the ext length to still be the same and modify or buy bigger bumstops so you dont crush your brand new shocks
the 5125s are a great shock and come in many different lengths! so they are a great option. If you do not care about offroad then it is ok to have a shock that is not as long as your full droop meas. But I would opt for an optimum size shock and never have to worry! my .02.
I rebuilt my springs and got a bit over 3 in rear so i had to get the 5125s. 9.25 travel lengths. dsms can tell you lengths! fyi the emus and 5100 that are supposedly ok for my lift would limit my travel. so since i offroad i said no to them.
