Ya see your lucky with the free shipping, that's what usually ruins it for us up in the north cause we get killed with shipping... Essex is a good choice for us in Canada but the 299.99 from DSM is a sweet deal..... But I have found a local guy near me CT Motorsports that deals with toytec and he beat DSM when u including shipping and me getting hit with duties and taxes he beat them by $10.00 which isn't much but shipping them here I don't know how to figure the exact duties ill get hit with so.. CT works out better unless something changes

The 5100's will at the limit work with 1.5" of lift in the rear but I did not try this so maybe double check with someone that did . Here's a couple of pictures, the picture that show the front makes it look nose high but in reality it looks better IMO
What's your setup?

I desperately need new shocks for my Taco sport. I need to keep my truck at stock height for work, will 5100's work on stock height?

Thanks Bro! Curious to see what the ride will be like. Now it's pretty bumpy with the worn out OEM's.
