    5100's (front 1.75) all around, rear leaf TSB. Bestop supertop, OEM bed mat. Pioneer 3200 HU, Pioneer GM 9500f amp, Eclipse SC6900 Front, Rear Eclipse 5 1/4, Marv box with Arc 10 sub. Dampened all doors and back wall with BXTII and ensolite, Supertop, blacked out emblems, 2011 grille, bedmat
    Getting the rear TSB done next week, bought 4 5100's from downsouth. Since they rear tsb includes an alignment that i won't have to pay for, how much would be reasonable for them to install the 4 bilsteins? do they normally replace the rear shocks anyway on a rear leaf tsb? Thanks

    Since you have a TRD, they wouldn't be replacing the front or rear shocks. It should only take them a couple hours with your truck on a lift but you can save a bunch of money doing it yourself and having them align it as part of the TSB. The rear shocks are very simple to install, the fronts are slightly more involved.

    When I had my 5100's installed the dealership wanted $550 or so plus another $100 for the alignment to do the installation of my 5100's while they were going to do the TSB. Total ripoff and I let him know it. They did the TSB, and the next day I took it to another place that installed all four 5100's and an alignment for $340 total.

    id say no more than 300 with alignment.

    or some food and beer and have people in your area from the forum help you out.

    Sierra Expeditions installed my entire front and rear suspension for $150 (5100's front and rear, new UCAs, new OME coils). Already have the Firestone lifetime alignment plan so factor some of that $160 into this and it probably ran me about $200 out the door.

    Sure makes my 8 hour diy install worth it for those prices.

    so i checked with the dealer, they said with the Rear TSB with covered alignment, it would be $274 to have the front and rear shocks switched out with the bilsteins i already purchased.
