what do you want to be clarified? your first post makes no sense but if you're asking for fitment, click this link. I filtered Bilsteins only for your 2008 2wd Sport.

I think your pretty much did answer you own question. If your that worried about it, jack up the truck and get out the 'ol tape measure.

Dude you make no sense and probably have no clue what your doing. You don't need 5100's for a stock 2wd truck

This may be a simple case of the wrong parts, it seems to me that there are probably 50 different part #'s that may "look" like they are right but are not.

Is there someone who can point us to the correct Bilstein 5100 part #'s for a torsion front end truck?
