    I have a TRD OR that I installed the Bilstein 5160 rear shocks on and right now I have the reservoir piggy backed on the shock. I want to move the reservoir to the frame but I cant seem to find a mounting bracket for the 5160 anywhere. Can somebody with a Baja with the rear reservoir mounted on the frame get me the part number for the reservoir brackets so I can order some. Thanks for the help!

    I believe that bracket is welded on.

    Hmmm well that would make it an issue trying to acquire one. If thats the case Im guessing just getting together with a local fab guy would be the best option huh?

    Curious as to why you want to do this in the first place?

    Got the same shocks on my 2011 TRD OffRoad and right now I got the reservoir mounted on the shock body but I want the reservoir mounted on the frame

    I'm sure someone makes an aftermarket mount. There ia no need to overpay for Toyota's part.

    Honestly I tried searching myself but I didn't find much. I did find JK frame mounts.

    This might be my best option

    Yea I think most companies sell the mounts just with the shocks themselves
