    Will front stock Bilstiens fit with my lift kit?

    I have an 04 Tacoma and this guy is selling stock front Bilstiens for 100 bucks and was thinking of buying them.

    Here are some pics.

    Save the 100, sell the spacer for 50 and spend the difference for some 5100's.

    Yep, even if they fit they won't help the bad ride the spacer is giving you.

    x2. But to answer you question OP I THINK that should work. Hopefully someone will chime in and know for sure. But I think your best bet would be to sell the spacers and just get 5100's and new coils.

    Thanks for the replies. I'll do what you guys suggest if you can post me to a link on eBay for these 5100's. Could you also send me a link for rear shocks as well? I might as well do all 4 at the same time. The back has those blocks over the leaf springs.

    I appreciate your time to help me out!

    Appreciate it and only 300 bucks. Thanks for saving me from buying the other ones.

    BTW for the rear shocks will they work ok with the lift blocks that are already installed on the leaf springs or should I remove the blocks and then install the rear shocks?

    If I were you I would pull the blocks out and leave them out. Did you leave the front spacers off or did you put them back on?

    I think that for an extra fifty you can get an add a leaf and take out your block. Those 5100 shocks are awesome too. If you put thos in you wont have regrets.

    The Toytec AAL's are 75 I believe but either way like you said they will give you a much better ride quality

    Those stock billys are also for a second gen and would not work on an 04
