    You did it! Just wait until you start putting miles on the truck. I still remember how much I hated the ride with the factory Bilsteins, and how much SMOOTHER the ride is with the 5100's!

    Is your truck stock height? Are the 5100 really a big improvement? I am looking to make my stock 2000 v6 trd truck have a smooth ride on dirt roads... But not be to mushy with a load and on the pavement... Is this possible!
    Thanks...

    Is that all you installed, just the Billy's or did you do anything else to the front end? I've been thinking about doing mine for a while now just a little worried about the effect on the springs I guess.

    Hate to bug you but... Did you change just the front shocks only? And the rear shocks are still the stock ones?

    i am having trouble finding the 5100's for my year truck? (its a 2000 tacoma V6 TRD) all the websites seem to tell me that my truck calls for 4600's? any ideas or help? i am not looking to lift the truck but really want the best ride possible... sounds like i should go with the 5100's if i can find them?
