    Getting ready to put on a set of Bilstein 5100's and new coils on the front of my Tacoma. I just noticed that the Bilsteins do not come with new bushings or washers. I was hoping to assemble everything with new top plates and just swap the new setup into the vehicle. I was not planning on dissassembling the setup already in the truck.

    Does anyone have a Toyota or Bilstein (or any other company) part number for the bushings and washers that I can use with the Bilstein 5100s?

    I saw a set at Toytecs but $20 for the set of bushings plus $15 shipping seemed a bit much to me.

    Had to bite the bullet and pay the CRAZY shipping prices from Toytec. Couldn't find them anywhere else.

    Cant you get some cheap shocks from the auto parts store? Most shocks from the auto parts stores come with bushings...

    Kinda what I had to do. Had a bucket of new shock bushings and washers from years past and just picked thru those till I found a close match. I thought Billstein would at least have the rubber bushing pieces in there.

    Ace Hardware has big rubber bushings, was just there today looking for something else and came across the rubber bushing bin.

    I just ordered a set of front bushings, top and bottom w/washers, for $20 ($12 shipping!) from www.polyperformance.com. SKU# TTL-142467

    Cheapest I could find them- the shipping was pretty ridiculous, but whaddya gonna do?

    Yeah that is the Toytec kit I was talking about earlier. Its the only one I could find. I think it is a bit odd to order a new set of shocks but not include the bushings with them.
    I mean why would anyone want to reuse the old bushings on a new set of shocks.

    I agree. My 5100's came with the bushings. I got them from shockwarehouse.com though.
