    The GMC shocks will NOT fit a tundra. The top of the shock mount is different. Here's a quick pic for reference.

    No problem! Check out http://downsouthmotorsports.com if your still looking for some shocks! Very good prices and awesome customer service. I think the rear 5100 are like $80 new!

    @Bannock452 if I wanted to get the adjustable bilsteins and put them at their highest setting up front and regular ones in the back would I still need to get a leveling kit? or shackles in the rear? im looking for a slightly lifted but level look. any help would be appreciated!

    Getting the 5100 on all 4 corners would be perfect for a level lift at a great price! It is not advised to add another lift with the 5100 already set at the highest setting. Just keep in mind the higher you lift the more harsh the ride will be.
    As for the rear the 5100 will NOT lift the rear at all so you can add a shackle to lift the rear 1-3" depending on which shackle you purchase.

    Depending on your budget you can check out the 6112 for fronts which comes with a new spring special for the tundra. And 5160 for the rear will allow for more travel and lift capabilities. Just an idea.
