    im looking to get new shocks all around. I live in canada so i want to purchase them locally and not over the internet. bilstein 5100 are my first choice because they are well priced and will accommodate a 2 1/2" lift. but looking on their website the application chart for the fronts does not state the 03 tacoma and i couldn't find the application for the rears.

    does someone have the part #'s for the front coil-over shocks and the rear shocks that will fit on the 1st gen?

    Front - D558TO
    Rear - D559/D560TO

    The D559 will be the left (driver) side rear. The D560 will be the right (passenger) side.

    i went to a shop to try and order these parts but they said that that is not a bilstein part #. they even called bilstein to check if they have an application for the 03 tacoma. and they said no....
    help. someone with a pre 05' tacoma that has the 5100 on their truck please post the proper part #

    thats taxes in and a special order charge. they cost $324 from wheeler's before shipping so i don't think $500 is all that bad.

    I bought mine (5100's) & put them on the same day, (fronts only) I paid $200 out the door for the front pair, haven't got to the rears yet, not really concerned with them yet, & WHAT A DIFFERENCE, worth every dollar !!!
