    Is bilstein going to warranty these when they leak everywhere after 6 months, like the 5100s do?

    These carry the Bilstein lifetime warranty. Not sure why you would think these would leak.

    I've had bilsteins 5100s leak for no good reason, lots of people have. Bilstein warranties mine somewhat reluctantly. Just wondered if these would be warrantied since bilsteins does not warranty some of their shock part numbers.

    I thought these might fall under the "6100 series" which carries a 90 day warranty, like most of their "off road" shocks. Since Bilsteins warranty policy online does not currently include the 6112 model number.

    Hopefully they do have a lifetime warranty!

    Can you take measurements for extended length and compressed length of each or measure the stroke of each?

    I had the 5100s on my 05 taco, thinking of putting the 6112s on my 15 taco, looks and sounds like a big differance

    Do you think a group buy might be in order for these? Are they selling well? Debating these with an AAL after my audio system is finished.
