    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.

    I know I'm totally lost with this whole 5125 thing now. DSM is it the the collapsed length on the 5100 just being longer. I had 8.5" 5150's and i just couldn't imagine having them on a stock truck seeing how little of the shaft was exposed on mine with a 2" AAL.

    BE5-2285(L) Ext: 19.61 Col: 12.80
    BE5-2286(R) Ext: 20.28 Col: 13.19

    5125 Series
    BE5-6252 Ext: 21.54 Col: 13.58
    BE5-6253 Ext: 22.50 Col: 14.06

    5100 Series
    BE5-D559 Ext: 21.60 Col: 14
    BE5-D560 Ext: 22.50 Col: 14.6

    We had a customer contact us who went out wheeling with the 5100s, no lift in the rear. He noticed he was bottoming out his shock (driver side). I contacted RCD about the issue, and they told us that the shocks are a too long for no lift. And that if you run them with stock suspension, the bump stops need to be modified. That is when we tried the 5125s on our "stock" 96 Tacoma 4WD, and they work perfectly.

    I done ordered them yall better go back and put they are for stock height. But when I order them from your website the guy who I was talking to Marko wanted to know how much was I lifting the rear, I said 2". So I dont know what I will be getting. I order the 5100's for front and the 5125's came with them and no where on there it said the rear shocks were for stock height.

    I thought they were a better shock and thought they were set up for 2" of lift in the rear.
