Just bought an 06 limited with air leveling system in the rear. Want to level the front about an 1 1/2 inches to match the rear which is in N position and run 265. Bilstein said they couldn’t advise 6112 because I have air ride. That’s what I want to run on the front. Will it work, is anyone running them with air bags on the rear.

With air ride you have to have the correct valving for the air spring. I run the rancho rs9000xl. They are adjustable. At 6 they ride great

I am very interested in your knowledge.
I have a 09 Toyota Sequoia platinum air ride in the back but adjustable shocks.
Can you tell me if I can replace it with the Bilstein shocks 5100 set? And disengage the ome suspension system?

You can do the 5100s up front but best to go with Dobinson in the rear. You would have less shock travel than stock with the 5100. To make the conversion all you have to do, from what I’ve read is remove the bags and replace them with coils.

Btw that kit is for the 2008 and newer not 2001-2007

If you disengage the air suspension on your 09 you won't have rear springs. They are air springs. You would have to do a coil spring conversion. I would not do that if it were me. What is your goal for the truck, that is the bigger question that needs to be asked first

I just wanted new shocks and keep the air ride and disengage the adjustable electronic components off the shocks.
Will it work with Bilstein 5100 shocks?
