Ok, so I'm new here and have the 08 4x4 TRD and have been searching for comments on replacing the front stock bilsteins with the 5100 adjustable. Since I have the TRD with stock bilsteins all around is it recommended to still replace the back ones? Or will it be fine to keep the original back ones and just add the fronts? Truck has 35,000 miles on it and about to add its first set of new tires.

Thanks for any replies

Yea , I hope so I have been reading so much on this subject with a lot of different Opinions.
I was close to going with the LRO kit but have since decided that the bilsteins 5100 Adjustable was the best route for me. I plan on doing this myself just need to get the coil compressor. Should I install before new tires? Adding the BFGR AT KOs not sure on size yet. Thinking that maybe before, so mount ,balance and alignment at same time.

Well back from vacation today and started install on bilstein adjustable. First one took a while ( first time to remove front shock/sturt from a vehicle ) but second went on fast. Now tires and alignment!

Ride seems to be fine, after test drive I did lose a little lift but still just the 1" rake. Guess everything just settled ,I measured several different ways and times before and after.

My question now is the size tires on factor wheels ? I think I am just going to try and go with the 275/70 if I can , and I'm now not sure what brand. I was sure on BF Goodrich AT KO but am open to any suggestions on the AT tires!
Thanks for looking
