    SOLDThanks for the interest, everybody!

    Like the title says, these are brand new from DSM. I got these a few months ago but ended up upgrading to some longer Bilstein 5150s (with resi's :D) so I'm selling these. I'm asking $140 shipped for both shocks. (DSM sells these for $80 each: http://downsouthmotorsports.com/i-135588-bilstein-5125-series-performance-shocks.html )

    These shocks are best for stock height up to about 1.5" of lift.

    8.13" Travel - Driver Side Rear
    8.60" Travel - Passenger Side Rear

    I would like these, but have some dumb questions first..

    These fit 05-10 Tacomas?

    Why are they different lengths? (contribute to the "Taco Lean"?) Lol

    What is the stock Bilstein travel lengths?

    No they wont fit 2nd gens.

    These have eye holes on top and bottom(1st gen) yours only have eye holes on the bottom. They are like front shocks. Just go look at yours and you'll get what im saying.

    I see that now.. Crap. Reading the title to the post would have helped too.
    If my phone could do it I'd insert a smiley smackin himself in the face here.

    Duh!

    Yeah by themselves, no. (See tacoridinhigh's answer below)

    I don't know about 2nd gens, but the stock 1st gen shocks are actually different lengths. When I first got these shocks I thought the same thing, so I went and measured the stock bilstiens on my truck. The passenger side is longer. I guess DSM knew what they were doing when they sent them together like that... :D And no, it won't do anything to help the Taco lean... =/
    This.^^
    Very cool. I didn't know they had those.

    I just got some 5125's for my All Pro 3" leaf pack. Whats the main difference between the 5125's and 5150's?

    5150s just have external resivoirs which helps keep the shock cooler..... 5125s are perfectly fine though.

    Does anyone know how much travel the standard 5100's have? Since I added a leaf to my dakar pack I think i am maxing out my 5100's; therefore if these have more travel I may be interested...and I'm local!

    Hopefully someone will answer.... I sent an e-mail to toytec lifts--they should have that info.

    My guess, however, is that your 5100s actually have more travel.... We'll see though. =/

    According to Toytec, these 5125s have the same travel as your 5100s........ They didn't give me any solid numbers though.

    Not sure I understand the question...... You can get them both in many different travel lengths.
