I recently bought these for my F250. My truck had the original shocks which had a very rough ride. I purchased these after looking at other reviews on the web. These shocks made a noticeable difference to the comfort of the ride and the handling is great as well.

what a diffrence
everything about these shocks was perfect what i was looking for, they were easy to install, the life time warranty was outstanding even though i wont need it, the ride diffrence was night and day. having 3 kids riding in the truck i needed a comfortable ride and these shocks did that for me.[...]
I am looking for extended version of 5100 for a 1998 Tacoma with a AAL which gives it a 1.5" lift. Thanks David

Sorry, but Bilstein does not offer a 5100 series for your application. We do offer the Pro Comp Suspension ES9000 Series Shock Absorber Part Number: EXP924509 that will fit your application. Thank you for the question.
