    we can use the stock trd bilsteins in the rear so i would think 5100 would work. Idk they might be too long unless you lift the rear though

    Stock replacement 5100s yes but they will give you a harsher ride I would think

    I'm having trouble finding a 100k mile service list.

    What all is normally on a 100k service?

    I've never had a vehicle that was under 100k before this truck. lol

    I would try to get those rotors turned again and the rear brakes last forever on these little trucks

    My reasoning for replacing the parts.
    Rotors have a pretty big lip from being worn down.
    This truck was lowered and I drove it pretty hard.

    Also, it straight does not stop in the dez.
    I can feel the ABS working so hard to slow it down, but there's just no bite in the binders.

    If you drove it hard then you have the right list :)

    gotta pay to play, most lifted trucks will. partially why i'm considering going to a more modern full size v8 with LT. these four bangers get crappy ass mileage with little power to boot, kinda eliminating the reason to run the 4banger to begin with.

    i think even a 3.0 or 4.0 engine will make a huge difference especially geared correctly

    Hey Ryan,

    I don't know if you already had your 100k service work done.

    Here is my 2 cents:

    Front brake rotors - Yes, you can replace these.
    Front brake pads - Brake pads are good until they get down to 2mm Rear brake shoes - Same as above, you can replace them when they get down to 2mm

    **Most brake shops, including dealership offer free brake inspection, they can let you know how much brake depth is left.

    Oil change - IMO, oil change every 6k-8k depends on how the engine has been running (towing or not towing)
    ATF fluid flush - This can be done every 120k
    Rear diff oil change - I change mine every 60k, but it can be done every 120k
    Coolant flush - Yes, good to have it flushed at 100k
    Spark plugs - The iridium spark plugs (in the 5 lugs) are good for 100k, so this would be a good time to replace them. FYI 6 lug spark plugs need to be replaced every 60k
    New belt - I would check the belt every other oil change interval. I had to replace mine because it was cracking. Also a good idea to have an extra one inside the cab of the truck in case the one rips **knock on wood*
