    I am going to be putting a 7-8" lift on a 2013 tacoma, and need a find a good set of shocks, so i heard you are the guys to talk to. I would like a set of Bilsteins for the rear. I cant seem to find anything that is going to fit. I will be having Alcan make me a custom leaf pack set of 8" for the rear. I would like a shock that wont let me bottom out. So If i goto flex the truck out, the shock wont stop me. Please let me know if you can point me in the right direction. thanks

    Good morning,
    No 5100's that will bolt directly into the stock location.
    You will most likely need to run a 5125 in 14" Travel along with a stem conversion kit.
    The only draw back will be the 5125 is not valved vehicle specific and only carries a 90 day warranty from date of purchase.
    Let us know if there is anything that we can help you with.
    Thank you,
    Sonny

    Honestly....Not to many options because of the way the shock needs to mount..We maybe able to get ICON to build an emulsion shock in a 30" to 33" extended length?

    not sure if this will be of any help but 31.76 extended is something like 9-10inches longer than stock and should mount to stock mounts, compressed at 18.25 should be just fine with that monster leaf pack
