    Just wanting to know exactly what these do for the truck vs. the stock TRD shocks. I'm not the most mechanicaly sound person and I see these posted all of the time and don't have a clue.. I'm sure someone can help explain.

    Height adjustable in the fronts to allow for a slight lift. I dont know if the compression/rebound is any different though.

    5100s are adjustable and you can lift the front of your truck with them..

    Could be just from compressing the oem springs though. Not necessarily the shock itself.
