    Its time to start replacing some parts in the Taco. I am thinking about changing all of the shocks to Bilsteins 5100's also I should probably replace the spring leafs on the back. Please directly me in the right direction!!!!!!
    1). Websites were I can purchase them at the best price????
    2). Best settings to set them on????
    3). Any suggestions that you might have will be appriciated.

    Thanks in advance for all your help.

    ^^^ The items for sale are all OEM parts. So it isn't anything different that the OP is currently running.

    I don't think you qualify for the TSB. AAL or getting a new leaf pack depending on what condition yours are in right now.

    I just put my 5100s on today at the 2.5" setting. I'm glad I did because otherwise I would have had too much rake with the 2" AAL. As it is now, I'm hoping the leafs settle a bit because I'm still not close to level.
