    I'm running a pair of Bilstein 5125's on the rear of my 98 taco - I've got no complaints - but the rubber(?) bushings are shot and I need to replace them (top and bottom / both shocks).

    Does anyone have part number / vendors for these items?

    Specifically, the stickers on the shocks read (drivers side) F4-BE5-6525-H5

    I'm hoping to source the bushings prior to removing the shocks.

    If you get the poly bushings make sure they have the 3/4" holes. The last set of Bilstein 5125 shocks I bought came with 5/8" bushings and didn't fit the rear of my Tacoma so I had to replace the bushings.

    Already been in touch with Wheeler's and no dice if you have a part number I'd appreciate it.
    I'm aware of the 3/4" ID - Does that apply to both ends (top/bottom)?...
    I'm looking at 2 diff Energy Suspension items which might fit the bill
    98108 or 98109
    I'm pulling the shocks Saturday... I'm hoping 4wheelparts near me will have what i need
