Yes they will fit. Many of us have them.

I sure love mine!!! I think there might be two different lengths though, for stock and lifted applications. Give Greg a call and order them up. They are easily the best <$200 that I've spent on my truck.

Put it this way, I ran the el cheapo ProComp shocks that came with the lift without any boots. I had a seal go bad after about 20k. This, in my opinion, was a result of pitting/rusting on the shaft itself due to the harsh winters here in Pennsylvania. Then at some point, I compressed the shock enough that the rusted/pitted area went down and trashed the seal. This is when I bought the Bilsteins.

I am running the boots on mine, personally think it looks better that way plus it does offer more protection for the shaft. I do think that you should regularly slip the boot off to clean the shaft though.

Anyone heard when the height adjustable 5100's for the front of the Titan are due out? I read somewhere that the ones for the Tundra are available.

well, there is no such thing as winter on this island ;) haha ... I've also read that in some instances, the boot can actually do more harm than good, trapping dirt and stuff in there... When I put a steering stabilizer in my old frontier, it recommended not using the boot in the rancho instructions...
