    2000 Tacoma, SR5, TRD, 2.7L (LEV), 4wd, 5sp m
    Magnaflow cat and cat-back exhaust, AFE Stage 2 cold-air intake system, 2.5" lift via Skyjacker leaf packs, Bilstein 5100s.
    Is anybody running Bilstein 5100 rears with a Rockstomper U-bolt reversal kit and 5" lift on a 1st gen? I am wondering whether the above-axle mounting location provided on the Rockstomper u-bolt plates will cause the 5100s to bottom out. Seems like it would give a few extra inches of droop, but not sure if they can handle the stuff. Maybe taller bump stops? How tall?

    I'm running Skyjacker spring packs with 2.5" lift and 5100s. I have been thinking about adding 2.5" shackles as well and wondered if the spring reversal kit might allow me to keep the same shocks.
