    Had the Taco in for the Spiral Cable recall and the tech said the front shocks were weeping. Time to upgrade and level. Looking at Down South website, they list 2 different 5100 packages for my rig. One listed as 5100 Bilstein and the other as RCD/Bilstein. What is the difference between the 2 packages? Which would be a better match for my truck? It's a '07 4x4 Dbl Cab LB. 95% street driving with a little dirt/gravel road thrown in. No serious off-road use. The truck has 55,000 miles on it. Any reason to look at replacing coils at this point? Can anyone shed some light on this?

    RCD is I believe a company they buy the 5100's from and they get a better price than normal..so thats why the one package has a better price. Same product just different distributor I think.(I bought the RCD 5100's and they work great :p )

    Thanks Jeff. When I didn't get a response, I called DS and was given the same answer. Same product, different vendor.
