Those are great OEM replacement shocks. Bilstein 4600's. I would choose those if you don't want the 5100's. I had the 5125's with stock leafs and did not like the ride so I went back to the dealership and ordered stock yellow TRD Bilsteins.

Thanks for the info! Do folks use the 5100's for stock suspension? As I have been reading, they seem to be used for lifted or altered trucks.

BTW, the truck is just a 2003 4X4 Xcab manual SR5, not TRD.

Yes most opt for 5100's as replacement shocks cause of the valving but 4600's are great for OEM replacement if that's what you need or want. Like I said I ran 5125's aka extended version of 5100's with the stock leafs and didn't like them so I went back and bought new TRD Bilsteins from the dealership.

I put the same shocks on my 98. They do a great job at replacing the stock shocks. 5100 front struts are can provide a minor lift for the front end, but can also work at stock level.

I have the Bilstein HD's that i got at vato zone, they are a decent shock but ride a little rough. Ha them for about 30,0000 miles and feel like they are about toast in the front. From down south motor sports you can get a set of 5100's for $320. Run the fronts at zero and get the stock height 5100's in the rear. I would only think the ride would be much better and the price is cheaper.
