    I have installed 5100’s on three Toyotas (’04 Tacoma, ’00 Tundra, & ’07 FJ) The 112-620 springs + 5100’s are the way to go for leveling and beefing up your front end. I installed 5100’s on the FJ with 620 springs and a 1/4″ spacer on driver side. My used ’07 FJ came with 1 1/2″ spacers on front w/stock shocks & springs. Do not waste your money on spacer kits, just go for the 5100’s and 112-620 toytec springs. Road ride is better, off road is way-better, travel is increased. 1 1/2″ front spring spacers just limit your travel and cost same. You need 1/4″ driver side spacer too (above spring plate), almost counter acts driver, gas tank, and front driveline system weight, all on left side. The 5100 Billy’s are the only ones to buy, don’t scrimp and get OME shocks. Lowest clip setting on 5100’s with 112-620’s lifts front 1.5″, each clip adds .85″ of lift. I used 2nd clip and front is level with rear which has 2″ spacer on stock springs. But buy all 4 shocks, don’t scrimp – they are way better that OME.

    Used the 5100’s to replace the stock X-REAS system on my 2004 4Runner. The ride is amazing now, better than I ever remember with X-REAS. Installation was straightforward. Couldn’t be more happy.

    Fit perfect! Only thing is I had to use the old bushing for the rear shocks. Great product and great price!

    Contacted customer service which was very quick and helpful. Best price I could find. Product looks great, shipping was fast, and I’m ready to install in my 2006 4Runner to replace my X-REAS system.

    Like many others, I used the 5100 kit to replace the X-REAS system on my 2005 4Runner. Ride is much more crisp, a little stiffer than the stock system, but not quite like a “Truck-ride”. I installed the front system at the 3-clip position to raise the front ~1.75″ lift. This did raise the front pretty close to 1.75″ and leveled out nicely (still ~1″ front rake). It seems like the front lift did not effect the ride as much as I anticipated it, due to the internal valving (damping/ rebound) on the front shocks. Bilstein knows that most installers are looking to get the 1-2″ lift out of the system and have valved the front shocks according. Rear hardware was excellent and a great fit. Remember to purchase new front upper shock mounts (not included in the kit).

    Application: 2004 GX470. I used these 5100’s with the OME 883 coils up front. On the middle perch it raised the front of the rig a hair under 3 inches. The price on this site is the best I found. The ride up front is very lively (never had a Bilsteins before). Going to get them out on the trails soon for the true test.

    After I put the spring seat on correctly, everything came together nice. Replaced all 4. This is not as soft as the X-REAS, but get great feel for road. Is a nice mixture of being able to feel the road, but still be a comfortable ride.

    Love this kit! Added diff drop and new strut mounts to make this set up complete. Took almost 2 hours to put together and super easy. Drives and handles better than factory and looks good! Lift looks spot on and new 285/70/17 BF’s fit with no rub!

    I put the 5100 series on my 2008 FJ Cruiser. They fit perfect and in the last week since I put them on seem to work well, too!

    Just installed. Fits great. 1.75″ setting allowed a stock FJC to now ride level. Needs alignment and all will look and ride great. IMO the best suspension upgrade to those not wishing Jack the ride height to extensive levels.

    I purchased these for my 2007 FJ Cruiser to avoid “leveling kits” that use blocks. I read on several FJ Forums that using Bilstein 5100 Series would level out the front end of the FJ Cruiser, by about 2″ (3rd notch). I’m currently running the next tire size up from stock, 285/75/16 with no rubbing on day to day driving in the city. The shocks look and feel great so far, I can feel the difference, definitely an upgrade from stock and reasonably priced. I’m looking forward to getting these off-road. I emailed BilsteinLifts before purchasing with questions and they were a big help, thanks dudes!

  3. Answered by the admin You are right, the rear shocks are only longer, they will not lift the rear end of the truck by themselves.

  8. Answered by the admin Only rear shocks will fit the 2015 4Runner, fronts will not. As for the KDSS - the installation of these shocks will disable the KDSS system
  9. Answered by the admin These shocks will fit if your 4Runner is Without X-REAS Suspension
  10. A Try searching online. Use part # B4-KT1-Z103A00. This is the installation kit and contains 2 bushings, 2 washers, and 1 locking nut.
  11. Answered by the admin Yes, these includes black boots
  12. Answered by the admin No, 3" is the maximum lift you can do without changing a lot of other parts. Otherwise you will damage the suspension.
  13. Answered by the admin Depends on what you are looking for. If you are looking to raise the rear also, you would need rear lifted coils. Front shocks can lift the vehicle with the snap ring setting.
  14. Answered by the admin You can use coil spacer for the rear, since rear shocks do not lift the vehicle. We do not have tire info for these shocks, but we always advice to test-fit the tire size first.
  15. Answered by the admin You re-use OEM ones, they do not come with front bushings
  16. Answered by the admin Thanks for the details provided. I think the daily driver will not need front lift more then 2.5'' ? Bilstein shocks allow regulating height 0-2'' using stock springs. If you feel your springs are already too weak this coils https://bilsteinlifts.com/shop/toyota-fj-cruiser/toyota-fj-cruiser-2010-2011-2012-2013/complete-lift-kits/toytec-3-lift-front-rear-coils-toyota-fj-cruiser/ will fit (must be used on the lowest clip with Bilsteins you've chosen otherwise you've gain too much lift). Or You may buy only front https://bilsteinlifts.com/shop/toyota-fj-cruiser/toyota-fj-cruiser-2010-2011-2012-2013/front-lifts/toytec-eibach-front-coil-lift-springs/ springs if your rear end is high enough.
  17. Answered by the admin Yes, it will help, if your rear suspension travel length increased not greater then on 2''
  18. Answered by the admin Of cource, if you can find it (the usually need to be pre-ordered). And for another price. If you want to save money & time travelling to parts store you can buy online from us.
  19. Answered by the admin No, it wont work for 2017 tacoma
  20. Answered by the admin

    It will work with the clip on 0" of lift
