    That's where I got mine.... $290 delivered. He gave me a discount AFTER I bought them for eBay for a higher price. Just give them a call. 2.5 front lift, 1.5 rear shackle. I can't say enough how much better the bilsteins work, both on and off the road.

    Can you give me an impression of how these 5100s improve the ride quality compared to the stock TRD Bilsteins?

    With my recently acquired 03 TRD with 73K miles, I get the sense that the front suspesions are very soft and cornering with them causes a lot of body sway. How will that be changed with the 5100s?

    it helps alot. then later when you got some more dough upgrade the coils and springs. that is the route I took and/or taking.
    I also got the downsouth package for 290.00
    a lot better ride just changing out the shocks for sure.
