    Got my stock double cab sr5 2010. wanted the trd offoad package but didnt have the extra $ lol. Can i just buy the Bilstein 5100 shocks and have them put on np. I didnt know if they were for the trd only or for all tacomca models. Would they make my stock height of truck alittle higher with the new shocks. .and these are godd for minor offroading right lol.

    No issues putting these on a stock SR5. The fronts are adjustable so you can adjust the height depending on where you set them. The fronts can be set at intervals from stock height to 2.5" of lift. The rears do not provide any lift.

    Yeah you can use them on a SR5 the 5100's are for all 6 lug Tacoma's there is a lot of guys running them on non TRD Tacoma's. If I had known better I would of bought a non TRD and put in a ARB locker. Because the locker is really the only thing you will end up keeping form the TRD package if your modding the truck.

    I have a friend with a tacoma that wants to raise it just a lil, I did a relatively small search on here and found the 5100's that i thought raised the truck all around :S

    It's funny, I've poured through this site for mechanical and performance and mods but I've got a lowered XR. Never once reaserched lifts.

    okay so 2 5100's for the front is about 180$. Whats the cheapest way to raise the rear?

    edit: to level Taco at 2.5"

    I think they do great for light wheeling. i take my truck on class 5/6 trails and they handle really well I do have the Eibach coils as well so that helps with the ride.
