    Read a bunch about the rear suspension TSB on here. I have a 2011 DCSB TRD Sport and want to get it done in a few months. I am also, like many others on here, am getting the bilstein 5100s. My question is how do the 5100s make the rear feel after the TSB is installed? Better, worse, same? Obviously the ride will be a little more stiff in the rear, just curious if getting all four 5100s are worth it or if i should stay with the bilsteins I already have on the rear. Thanks for everyones opinions.

    I say 5100's all around. Vastly superior to the stock shocks. You can snag all 4 from Downsouth Motorsports for $383.

    I really liked the 5100's I put on the rear of my '05 when I had Ride Rite air bags installed (to solve the bottoming-out). So yes, 5100's a re a better feel shock than the stock Bilsteins.
