    Where is the cheapest place to buy a set of rear Bilstein 5100's?

    Toytec has them on sale for $169.99

    Just wondering if anyone might know where I can get them cheaper, thanks!

    Also would these be a noticeable difference over stock rear shocks?

    DSM usually offers the best price on 5100s. As of this evening, they show rear shocks for your truck are $185, INCLUDING S&H, but BEFORE applying the TW member discount. Unless something's changed, I don't think Toytec offers free S&H. Between that, and the TW member discount, I suspect you'll find DSM offers more bang-for-the-buck in spite of the sale. Give them a call...

    I can't speak to how they'll compare to your stock shocks, but many of us are very happy with our 5100s.

    I cut some wires here. Added some wires there.
    x2 on Down South Motorsports. I haven't priced them out in a while but when I did dsm were hands down the way to go. You have to call to get the TW discount if I remember correctly though.
