    I have an 06 DC trd off road with a toytec aal 2" of lift with stock shocks. I want to upgrade the rear shocks so they do not top out over bumps. I was looking at the 5125's. But was wondering what valving/travel would I need to get. Or would the 5100's be good enough and not make that horrible thud when I go over bumps.

    wat?
    5100s accommodate up to 2" of lift w/o issue. those should be fine until you go over 2" of rear lift

    And a cheap alternative (temporary of course) shock extenders from toytec until you can save up for some better shocks

    So the 5125 would be a little over kill for my set up?

    Ya just go with the 5100's. It'll be a huge improvement over stock and you should be pretty happy

    I was talking too Sonny DSM via email and said the 5100's would be cutting it close with my 2" lift. He recommended going with the 5125 9" travel but I need a stem conversion?

    Are the rear 5100's longer than stock?

    I don't think so on the length issue just differently valved, more agressive
