    I just bought my taco last monday and the previous owner also gave me a set of brand new stock trd bilstein shocks. I plan on lifting my truck with either eibach/toytec coils or ome's...should I try selling these shocks and buying 5100's? Or will the new stock trd billies suffice? And if I were to sell them what's a reasonable starting price?

    I'm not sure if the stock Bilsteins on my truck were shot @ 151k, or if the 5100s are just that much better, but the 5100 seems to be a great shock.

    What's on the truck now?

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    Yeah sell them and buy new shocks and coils just putting those on and keeping the stock coils your front end is still going sag you need new coils to stop the sagging.

    Those dont look like the TRD bilstiens. They look like the 4600's (or 4100's...not sure)

    Yeah my proposed idea was to get new lift coils and pair them with the new new trd billies I have...but I think I will posting these on CL as well as the for sale section on TW.
