    Good point, BUT.....

    You need to take into account the fact that you'll need a loop to stem adapter, to make that shock work on your Tacoma. And said adapter adds approximately 1.5" to the length. So your 15.11 collapsed dimension will become 16.5-ish...the B110 shock will be shorter when collapsed, with no adapter required.

    I have rear TSB springs and a 1" block and I recently installed the longer 5100's. I had to make bumpstops about 3/4" longer than factory. I am very happy with the longer 5100's they have tons of droop and still compress the tires well into the fender. The shorter Bilsteins top out way too much for me.

    Did you have to go with longer brake lines also?

    I did not install longer brake lines, I made a relocation bracket for them. I took a piece of 1 1/2" square tubing and cut it in half. So it was basically a C shape, then drilled a hole in the top and bottom. I unbolted the bracket that mounts on top the axle housing and put the new bracket in between the mount on the axle housing and the brake line bracket. I now have plenty of slack in the rear lines when flexed.
    But to answer your question you will need to either relocate your lines or buy longer ones with the longer bilstein shocks.

    What about part BIL 33-230337? These look like they don't need an adapter for the 5125 and measure 15.01″ collapsed x 24.38″ extended?

    Good for the thread resurrection for me. I noticed the boot slipped off my passenger side rear 5100 last week and had to push it back down. I am running the wheelers 1.5 AAL and kept the overload in place, technically giving me 2" of lift. I only do off roading on forest roads, but this was after a trip to the ski resort. Gonna read through this thread to see what's up.

    I'm looking to do the same lift in the rear... just haven't decided whether I will be leaving the overload in or not. I was also glad to see this thread pop up to see what suits best.
