Just what I was looking for
Wanted to lift the front of my Tacoma but wasn't sold on spacers. My buddy suggested these struts and said that Bilstein was the best. I wasn't looking to spend that much on leveling my truck but am very pleased with the results. They really are the best out there. Worth every penny.

i am a believer
Have heard a lot of good things about Bilstein shocks, but am still amazed how much better my toy rides and handles. With a built in lift you cannot beat these. Kudos.

great shocks
these shocks are a great way to give your truck a better ride. The ride quality is great, especially for going on dirt roads. I have noticed while towing my trailer its much better handling. These shocks are doing good, really like them.

I had heard that these shock were the best. Now after installing them and felling the difference in the ride, I would have to agree.

Doing there job
I like the shocks. Had a shop put them in. These are my second set. My first set went on another truck and they are still going strong, but they have only been on there a couple years. I do like the way they lifted and leveled out the truck. I had an add a leaf put on a couple of years ago and the truck sat a little high in the rear. Now it has just enough lift to look good.

Excellent replacement part
Great looking shocks with even better performance. They completely changed the feel and look of my ride. Now my truck sits level, brakes and corners much more agressively and rides nicely as well! I am now a true fan of Bilstein shocks.

Way better
I had to buy spring compressors to swap springs from another strut wich was sketchy but all in all install was easy and no issues, with the clip at the highest point it raised the front of my 97 4wd tacoma at least 1.75" higher and took away my tire rubbing issues, it's a lot stiffer ride over stock and made it handle way better in the corners. Awsome struts.

Love These Shocks
These are a great choice for lifting your vehicle on a budget. Used the stock springs. Installed them on the highest setting to hold up an ARB bull bar with winch. Supported the extra weight and added about 1" of height.

Over all, can't be beat
I searched the web for about 3-4 hours looking for bilstein 5100's. A lot of sites said they carried them, but when it came down to it they didn't. I have a 2003 Tacoma & didn't want the original bilsteins that are oem because the 5100's are big & better. Finally I ran across Suspension Connection & they carry the 5100's for 1st Gen. Tacoma's. And for a great price, with a discount, great service & they arrived quickly. Then I was looking for a Tow Hitch & found that Suspension Connection carries them also. I will be going to Salt Lake City this week & will be stopping by to pick up rear shocks & a hitch. Thanks Suspension Connection You can't be beat. D. King

I see why these are ammong the most popular in the Toyota world
With the factory springs 250k miles old i got 2.25" of lift on the highest setting with tundra springs im rite at 3" on the lowest setting 30mph over holes and trail burms its as smooth of articulation as can be. Did figure out in the prosess that you have to loosen the upper and lower control arm bushings with the truck on the ground so they can spring into the new position the arms are at or they will always be in a "bind" wanting to roll the arms up at ride hight. Made a noticable diffrence in the ride and cornering.
