    I have a stock 03 pre runner that needs some new rear shocks.

    I'm looking at 5100's but ran into this note on a website selling them.

    not sure what it means. Can someone translate please :confused:

    thanks!

    Note: This 5100 Front/Rear Package is recommended when installing an AAL/Shackle in the rear. If leaving the rear suspension stock, the compression bump stop on chassis may need to be modified.

    give them a call, depending on the length and whatnot, they'll tell you exactly what you have to do.
