Bilstein 5100 advice

So i have a 03 4x4 with 3'' revtec coil spacers in the front and 2.5'' AALs in the rear. I recently ordered toytec rear shackles to give me the extra inch to clear the 33s i want to put on. So i have to get new shocks. I have heard good things about the bilstein 5100s but wanted to know if anyone had any advice on different shocks or these ones.

the 5100's are good but i am not sure if they will be long enough for your lift, i think they are only good to 2", give Sonny a call at downsouthmotorsports and he will take care of you and tell you what would be best.

Check out the billstein 5125s. They are longer for a higher lifted rear

the billys I have are max 2.5" so you will probably need to go to the 5125s. I'm not 100% though but good luck!
