    I have a 1996 waggy 44 sas DD currently runing procomp shocks and I'm thinking about replaceing them. What shocked would make a good replacement. Was thinking about 5100s.

    I have the 5100s on my 01 Taco and they feel really good. They are stiff but not harsh.

    SAS.. Need I say more.
    5100's are not long enough... I'd go with 7100s or any 12" shock. Really can't go wrong with anything

    Yea, you'll want 5125's not 5100's. Measure the travel of your current shocks and get the same (if the bump/droop numbers work for you).

    Bilstein 5125 is an inexpensive performance option.
