    I'm looking for Bilstein 5100 shocks. I looked at the "shop online" menu, and The List.
    I've googled and found this from Downsouth Motorsports.
    It's about the best price I can find. Anyone dealt with them?
    TIA

    They are hands-down the best suspension vendor out there.

    Just ordered from them a couple days ago. Had a couple questions and Marco was patient and informative during a Live Chat session.

    New to the Tacoma, but have been buying various things online since 1996. This was by far one of the best experiences.

    Superb vendor in my opinion.

    Huge thanks, for the response guys. That's what I needed. I'm def going to order from Downsouth today. Zac808 thanks for the discount code. I didn't know why they were vendors here b/c I didn't see them on the Shop Online drop down menu above.

    Is there any need for the Sway Bar Relocation Blocks that DSM suggested to go with the 5100s? (arrived today btw). Or will the 5100s fit reasonably well without it?
