I wanted a smoother ride for my stock 2019 Tacoma SR5 and bought these 5100’s to see if they would really make a difference in my daily ride quality. The front shocks I chose to increase the height 1 inch and make the front end sit level with the rear. The shocks make a Huge difference in ride quality!! I couldn’t be happier, the shocks absorb bumps exceptionally well and there is no more continued bounce after hitting bumps. Great Job Bilstein and thank you 4wheel parts for easy online ordering and quick delivery.
