Thanks! Where would you suggest I purchase the 5100s? Do dealers stock these shocks?

Cheers,

Wherever you are comfortable buying these days: Amazon, Summit Racing, 4WD Parts, AutoAnything Ect. Plenty of options. I dunno if dealers would, it probably undercuts their own TRD offerings.
Look on the Bilstein thread to see where people are buying and getting good deals.

These are what I got, check to see if there's a new version first.

Having owned both the 5100 and the 6112Ö I would spend the additional coin for the 6112 if you can afford to do it. Itís a very smooth in operation and feels better than the 5100.

I've read some post on one of the Tacoma forums where the ride is harsh even when the shocks are left at zero (no lift).

Thoughts? Should I be looking at other shocks that approximate the stocker's ride quality?

Thanks Much!
G

have KDSS?

i put TRD Fox from 2019 on my 2020 TRD Off Road. the ride is very plush and perfect for daily drive.
