    In anticipation of eventually getting the Rear Spring TSD done to my 2011 4x4 DC SB I thought I would be proactive and order a set of 5100 Series - Ride Height Adjustable shocks form the front vs springs spacers. Most venders have 2010 listed but no 2011s yet.

    Anyone have a p/n for the 2011's or a suggestion as to the best place to buy?

    Cheers

    Bob

    Mine didn't. The service manager actually wanted to know where he could get a set for his Taco.

    Thanks for the inputs. The difficult part will be getting the TBS done. 5100's will be easy.

    Will need an alignment after shocks are installed, correct?
