    I installed a leveling kit on my 2000 Tacoma that gives me 3" lift in the front and 2" in the rear. This is the type of lift in which I placed a block between the leaf springs and the axle.
    I'm noticing though that with the 2" lift in the back, the shocks seem to be maxing out.

    I was planning on ordering Bilstein 5100's but I dont want to order the same size shock and run into this issue again

    Does anybody know which size I should order that would be a little longer than the factory size and avoid maxing out my shocks?

    5125 part number 24-214667 the standard 5100 is good up to 1.5" inches of lift for the rear. 5125 is for 2-2.5 inches of lift. I don’t know if it will work but that’s the number.

    You can also look at the 5160’s part number 25-248692 left and 25-267570 right

    Personally I’d get the 5100’s they will work just fine. Like 4wd said they will be an upgrade from stock ones.
