    Tirerack sent me the wrong shocks, they are too small to fit over the bolt + too short for my prerunner! UGH!

    I don't go offroading that much, i thought 5100's are for them. So either they give me a refund with the shipping it cost to ship them back-- or ill get my credit union to get my refund and i'll keep the shocks and sell them on here.

    Can someone tell me what 5100/5125's are for?

    5100s are adjustable front shocks that preload the spring to give lift. 5125 are rear shocks for various lifted applications.

    Basically an upgrade shock. Worth the money. You can get 5100s in all 4 corners if you don't lift it. Be a better ride.
