My only complaint is that these did not come compressed. It was a struggle to install them because of that. Otherwise, they are amazing! They replaced the old ones on my 2003 4runner. Very pleased. The ride is much smoother and I got a couple inches of lift out of it.
Great shocks so far. A noticeable difference in ride quality.

I love everything about the shocks, they seem to be the number one shock for people with Tacoma's and I see why. I wish 4Wheel parts would fix their web bug that says "great deal on 4 shocks", even when looking at the Blistien 5100 struts, but when you order it only gives you 4 shocks, NOT a set of 4 for your truck (meaning 2 rear shocks and 2 rear struts), I was told it was a glitch they couldn't fix. Sounds like they need a better DBA, .NET admin and SQL Programmers to me... Just saying. There shouldn't be an answer like "we just can't figure out whats wrong" , Its the same thing as saying "I can't fix it" and in IT there isn't such a statement. But I love the Blistien 5100, if you have a Tacoma and your not putting a custom lift under it, this is the only way to go.
These Bilstein 5100 Series Ride Height Adjustable Shocks do not come with washers and bushings, but they do come with the snap ring. If you zoom in on the picture you can see it on the bottom groove of the shock body. It's the same color as the shock body so it's a little difficult to see.
This shock only fits the front. For a front and back package please order part number S/DShockingBIL5100w/FRTStrut. Thank you for the question.
are these height adjustable and how what are the settings for height? do they fit a 2004 4runner with stock springs in front? I want to use to level out the truck.
Answer this question
Yes, this unit will fit your vehicle. They are ride height adjustable. This wil level your vehicle and reuse the factory coil springs. Here's a quick video about this unit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hBpLKyaG9BE
