    yeah it is for the most part, atleast my friends tundra seemed like it was the same as when we put them on my tacoma. It's a pretty straight forward thing to do, and you'll love them, i know we do.

    Hey pataco,
    Glad you guys got the shocks. Yes, the install process is basically the same thing as the Tacoma. The whole strut assembly comes out, and gets placed in a spring compressor to get the coil off. Set the snap ring on your 5100 to the desired lift height, and re-assemble the strut assembly, using your stock springs and top plates. Hope this helps.....

    Marco
