Need more info. Are the shocks shot and you just want news ones and want to keep the lift?

Are you wanting to go to stock height?

Post a picture of the front suspension and we can help you identify what kind of lift you have.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong.. but the OP has possibly 1 of 3 or more lifts/combinations.
1. 5100's already (set at 2.5)
2. Higher Spring Coils
3. Spacer
4. Combination of one or more..

If you just want to change out to billy's and keep everything else the same, then just order from one of the many vendors (DSM, Wheelers, Toytec, etc) for billy's for the '03 taco, set them at "0".. and there is nothing else to do..

If you want to "just" run billy's at 2.5, then your gonna have to make sure that you have the stock height coils..or your gonna wind up with a higher lift than just 2.5

If you are just looking for the model/code for billy's that fit your '03..(which I hope you didn't start a thread just asking for that) type in bilstein 5100 03 tacoma in google and look around....

Take a little higher resolution pic and it will show up a little larger. I can't enlarge your pic enough to see exactly, but looks to me like you have a spacer.

Depends on what you want to run. Do you want to keep your spacer?

Still confused.....you want new shocks or no? You want to keep the spacer in particular, or just keep the truck lifted some other way?

Now I'm confused... If you just want to replace with billy's, then your actual question is what???? Go to one of the dealers here on TW and order replacements for your year...
