    Good morning,

    I just got off the phone with RCD and I figured I would let everyone know the latest ETA per RCD and Bilstein.

    The 5100 Series Shocks are done at Bilstein...Thank God...
    They are supposed to be shipped by the end of next week and figure 5 days transit time and that means we should have them at the end of this Month (January).
    Better late then never I suppose....Pretty funny if you think about it...
    Bilstein running out of an "A" mover shock,they are probably still upset about me selling them to all of the forum members to cheap..HA,HA,HA...
    Anyway by the grace of god and all that is holly we should have them at the end of this month....

    Thank you to all of you for your patients....

    Now off to the Gen 1 forum.....They are not going to be happy...
    Looks like sometime in March for them..

    As always "Thank you" to everyone out there for your business and patients..

    Sonny

    Sorry Sonny, it was directed at 08trdoffroad. He lifted his truck a year ago and then removed his lift.

    Maybe he intends to run 5100s at stock height. Sorry to hijack your thread!

    If i already have a toytec 3in spacer lift, what would these shocks do for me?

    They will if you run them on the stock setting, not sure I would recommended it though..
    Not really getting to much of a benefit from the shock...

    would it give me a better ride since its lifted and the current shocks are stock?

    It would help a little because of the valving in the shock, but I would be careful
    running the spacer with the shock.

    Ditch the spacers and set the 5100's for 2.5" of lift. You lose half an inch in altitude and gain a HIGHLY superior ride quality. Better damping, way less stiff.
