    The girlfriend has an 03 single cab 2.4L 4cylinder 5speed taco. The shocks are gone and I want to replace them but I don't know of a good replacement shock for that model; I wanted bilstein 5100's but I think they only come in the prerunner versions.
    Whats a good replacement shock for that truck besides blowing a grand and doing c/o's. I'd like to see some better options before just replacing with OEM parts.

    bilstein 5100's from downsouthmotorsports.....................awesome customer service and they are a vendor here.

    you can leave the fronts at stock height, and they still ride tons better than regular bilsteins.

    True, but do they fit the single cab 4cylinder 5 lugs?
