    If you aren't lifted, check out the Bilstein 4600HD. They're the same internally as a 5100, and likely cheaper.

    Bilstein 4600 line up is valved for stock applications and what came stock on TRD models.
    Bilstein 5100 line up is valved for lifted applications.

    His question over on the AAL thread makes me think that may be in his future, maybe not scraping the ceilings though.

    Find stock 2016+ TRD Off-Road suspension. I'd even grab a few sets while they're cheap and in large supply. Will net you a 1" OEM lift, too.

    We can get you the King 2.5 with resi's!! Well worth it!! :D

    OP...I would go with the Bilstein 4600 or the 5100 if you are going with an AAL.

    They are inexpensive and perfect for your set up!

    Yep.

    I think they're Bilstein 4600 Series shocks, though they're not the HD versions so far as I know. If you want replacements, you can find them on here second hand, with little or no mileage on them since most people take them off for lifted suspensions that can't use that shock.

    I'd bet you can get brand new OEM rear shocks for $50 or less, not including shipping costs - but you may be able to get some locally.

    Yep, those are them.

    You can input that part number into Google and see what website has the best price. If you have Amazon Prime, that's likely the best place to order.
