    You can adjust the fronts to sit at 0" (stock height), 1.75", 2.5".

    To much to list...see sig for more...
    There are also 5100 shocks for lifted applications so that is prolly the ones listed for 4WP...not the 5100 Adjustables.

    I believe on 1st gen the middle setting is more like 1.25.

    Also, the two rear shocks are different parts/lengths for left and right. One ends in part number 59, the other in 60, IIRC. I am at work and don't have the numbers handy...

    Yeah, 1.25" is right. Good call.

    Um, no, not technically to use the 5100s in front. They are designed to work with/preload the stock coils to create a little lift to level the front of the truck (which by design sat about an inch lower than the back, like lots fo trucks)

    Of course, if those are original coils, I bet thay are pretty damn weak and squishy by now. How much would you like to spend...there is really no limit.

    If all you need is shocks and you aee not trying to lift your whole truck or buy springs, you are set.

    Have you done your homework? What is the urgency here?

    See attached brochure (which is not Toyota specific)...
