You should be able to call or email top gun customz or bilstein and they should be able to give you a part number. I don't think bilstein sells directly to the public but i know top gun does.

Good nut I appreciate all the help. I just went out and rubbed the dirt off the stickers and I currently have Bilstein 5125's in the rear and 5100's on the front. I imagine I can just order the same part numbers I currently have or they would be able to cross match these numbers to the pro-comps.

Once last big q about the reservoir shocks and a pretty important one... what are all of the advantages??

Advantage to a reservoir shock is that the shock will not fade as quickly meaning that it will keep the oil cooler in the shock and external reservoir. As the shock heats up (transforms kinetic energy into heat) it will lose performance. Keeping the shock cool ensures your shocks will not loose their ability to dampen your wheels going up toward your vehicle and not sending the energy to the frame where you can feel it and loose control. Honestly though unless you are running your truck hard in the desert they are just for looks. On mine I have six way adjustment on the fly with a knob on the bottom and a key.

Yeah I went to the photos section and checked out your truck... DAMN I WAS IMPRESSED!

My truck is more of a road queen than anything the occasional camping or driving on the beach but nothing serious so that being said I think the Bilstein's are a good choice.

Once again Sullen thanks for all the input!!!
