    I'm currently running the stock TRD Billstien 4300's with a 2" AAL. I can feel that the rear end doesn't have enough sag. Does anyone make shocks that are designed to be used with 2" of lift? I know that Billstein doesn't make shocks that fit the bill, but what about any other companies? Thanks, Bill

    The Bilstein 5100s are for lifted applications. And would be a great choice. There are also the Old Man Emu shocks, and Icons.

    5100's don't come in the proper length. The standard ones don't have enough sag and the extended ones will bottom out before the bump stop hits the frame which can cause the shock to snap or bend.

    Bilstein 5100s (C476) have 8.92" of travel.

    OME Shocks have 10.08"

    Bilstein 5160 have 9.39"

    Bilstein 5100s (B110) have 10.94" **This shock requires either mounting or bumpstop
    modification to avoid shock damage.**
