Bilstein 5100 Series Shocks, the Perfect Addition to your Lift Kit or Leveling Kit
The Bilstein 5100 Series Shocks are designed specifically for your lifted vehicle. These shock absorbers feature a corrosion resistant zinc finish and vehicle specific valving. 5100 Series shocks use Bilstein's superior single tube high gas pressure design for consistent fade-free performance and long life. Bilstein's patented Digressive self-adjusting valving delivers improved damping control and a smooth ride for your Toyota Tacoma on all road surfaces at any speed.

The Advantage of Bilstein's Monotube Design
Heat is one of the major detriments to the performance and longevity of any shock absorber. Conventional designed shocks trap the heat within the shock body and do not let it adequately dissipate, making them prone to heat build up, fade and eventual failure.

Bilstein's technically superior, monotube gas charged design allows the excessive heat from the oil to transfer to the outer surface of the shock body and dissipate more efficiently. Gas pressure on the dividing piston exerts force on the oil column which prevents aeration (foaming) and viscosity loss. This allows the shock to maintain full damping characteristics under all conditions.

Note: Price shown is for (1) shock, quantity (2) shocks required for most applications.

Dear Suspensionconnenction, My 2004 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 has a pair of rear overload leaf springs that raise it up just a tad. As it sits, the drivers side shock mounts are 17 1/4" apart, the passenger side shock mounts are 18 1/2" apart. Would these mounting points fall within the travel length of the Bilstein 5100's? Would you recommend a different shock for my truck? Thanks!
These Bilstien shock would work perfectly on this application. They are one of the best ranked shock on the market today.

This Bilstein shock has been giving me a much smoother ride. Loving the way this shock absorbs the road that I'm driving on, makes the ride so much smoother on my older Tacoma. Highly recommended.

good in offroad conditions
Just bought myself this product primarily for riding on trails up in the Rocky mountains. I have been up driving on the dirt roads about 4 days now, the ride is much smoother on my 2003 Tacoma up there now thanks to the Bilstein shocks.
