    Hi everyone,

    I am planning to add a 3 inches lift kit to my 2011 Tacoma with as rear modification a 1.5 inches AAL. I understand that it would be wise to install longer rear shocks. Beside Bilstein 5100 (which seems difficult to get now) could anyone suggest other shock manufacturers and model for this application.

    Thank you in advance for your help and have a great day.

    Claude,

    Thanks DYOB for the information,

    I should be OK, I will probably get a 1.5 in AAL kit from OME which comes with shocks.

    Hope the Bruins get the Cup this year.

    Untill next time,

    Claude,

    Thanks Richard,

    I didn't know about those other Bilstein models. I haven't take my final decision, but I thinking going with a Old Man Emu kit.
