3rd gen with 5th gen suspension

I've got all four springs for all four corners and I'm going to order Bilstein 5100 series shocks tomorrow and probably new top hats for the front, anything else I should be aware of or any parts I should plan on changing while I'm in there that I'm not already aware of? Springs are from 2021 with 3kmi, shocks will be ordered specifically for my 97.

Do your sway bushings if your haven't already. 5th gen springs are more stiff than the 3rd gen springs and if your bushings are worn you'll have a loud ride.

5100s are pretty hard to find right now. Rockauto isnt even listing them right now.

I'm 4 weeks out, and yes you're right there's a backorder on fronts or rears depending on who you're talking to

Thanks for the heads up, I'll go ahead and order those as it makes complete sense, I'm going to have top hats probably from the dealer and just waiting on the bilsteins which is going to be about 4 weeks out

I have the KYB top hats on my 2001, with all 4 springs from a 2020 and I used bilstein 4600's. Front shocks are for a first gen Tundra and rear shocks are for a 4th gen 4Runner. Also did my rack bushings, end links and sway bar bushings at the same time. All poly bushings from Energy. Rides great, love the way it responds. Highly recommend.
