    Does anyone know if Bilstein 5100 part number 24-280785 will work for 2018 Tacoma. This website sells Bilsteins by this part number. You can see on the website under “Installation Notes” they claim the old part number is #24-239370. Which is what headstrong’s lift guide claims is the right part number. Seems kind of shady, 280785 does not show up easily in a google search.

    Yea but what the hell is that first part number. Because that is the part number on the box and shock. It looks very similar to other 5100s I’ve seen for the Tacoma but it shows up in now search except for one other post on these forums, but that didn’t help much.
