I could use some help with choosing a good shock... I have a 2000 taco ext. cab, trd package with the v/6 that is all stock.... 116,000 miles on it.... I am not looking to lift it... I live up a 3 mile dirt road that can be pretty rough at times... not a lot of washboard... just big ruts and potholes... I am trying to find the smoothest ride that I can.... I use the truck for town trips and don't tend to load it up to heavy... (I do have a steel lumber rack on it) I have been told that old man emu shocks is what I should get, the soft ones.... or bilsteins? rancho's? Any ideas? Suggestions?
Thanks in advance,
P.s. I am looking to smooth the ride for the dirt road... I don't mind the firm ride on the highway at all....in fact i like it... I have had the rancho shocks with the air compressor to adjust the shock settings on a 1977 chevy 3/4 ton 4whl drive but the mice would always chew the plastics air lines... Made it unusable... and i didn't notice a big difference... maybe it was the 1 ton suspension live axle front leaf springs?
