    I need help under standing bilstien, do they come stock on trd tacomas (not 5100 series)? I do not have a trd package, but I was wondering if I could get the front and rear shocks of the 5100 series and reuse my factory shock? Also I was wondering if I need the differential drop, it says for 4X4 which I do not have, but it is a pre runner which has the 4X4 set up

    the billies replace the stock shocks. Do you mean stock springs? if so, then yes.

    the 5100s are for 6 lug. which is prerunner or 4x4

    Spend some time reading the site. You can use the 5100's, or the stock, but not at the same time. Also, If your not 4x4, then you dont have a front diff.

    the 5100s are the shocks youre just gonna have to reuse your factory springs and no you wouldnt need a diff drop because you dont have a diff up front

    Do you know of anyone that is mechanically inclined? I say this not to be rude but it would be a benefit to you if they could look at your truck with you and explain what the different components are. We could type a big long explanation and maybe add pics but in the long run I think it would be better for you to see it first hand.

    Yes I did mean reuse my factory spring, not factory shocks. Yes I do have people that would be more than happy to walk me through these things but the thing is, they do not know about specific products that I have questions about such as above.
