    Ok.. I know its a long shot but I am on the search for these certain front shocks that I noticed were slightly different then your standard Bilstein 5100.

    As you can see below is your standard Toyota Tacoma 05+ Front adjustable coil over shocks.

    Now look below and in this picture is the 05+ Toyota Tacoma 4" Lift kit from RCD and they seem to offer a different set of 5100's with it...

    Now I know this could be a generic picture they use just to represent suspension components but it really doesn't look like it. Is there anyone out there who can enlighten me and tell me where I can get those 5100's?

    Do they offer part numbers for the components they offer in the kit? If not, maybe contact them and find out for sure. I checked the bilstein catalog but didn't find a 4" application front 5100.

    Why do you want the longer 5100's?
    They won't fit without RCD's 4" drop bracket lift.

    But, from RCD's install instructions for that lift, here's the old and outdated bilstein part number. F4-BE5-E122-T0
    If you need them, call RCD.

    I have a drop bracket kit but my suspension is wore out and I was just wanting a longer version of 5100's to set some 886's on.. I'll try giving them a call but for some reason when I try to go to RCD's website I can't get it to pull up..

    To much to list...see sig for more...
    Doubt those will work with your PC 6" lift. Spend the $ on the King coilovers for lifted application.

    Or Icons. Yeah, not so sure that those bilsteins would work properly on the Pro-Comp Lift. They Drop-Bracket design and amount is different I think.
