So I'm going with the 3" Revtek lift. My question is, the kit comes with longer rear shocks, however I'm not to impressed with the quality of them. I hear they are just as a stock shock in my car right now. My question, do I swap them out for 5100 rears and keep the front Bilstein's that I have or just keep the Revtek ones? Anyone one running this set-up currently with rear revtek shocks?

I just bought a 2008 FJ that has the Revtek #431 kit on it. I do believe that it has the Revtek rear shocks on it. I am also thinking of putting some 5100's on, but maybe front and rear. This kit was installed back in 2008, it seems like the front is a little lower than the back, which is why I thought of adding the 5100's. But FYI, I love the ride as is.

I have an '08 TT with the 3" Revtek kit. The front shocks are 5100 and the rear I believe are the kit shocks (white with black boots).

Very pleased with the ride so far, and my first one was 600 some odd miles.

The front shocks are 5100
You have 5100's AND a Revtek kit? The Revtek kit is just a spacer lift isn't it? The 5100's are an adjustable lift. Not all Bilsteins are 5100's
