LOL no problem, They run from $85 to $100 per shock but most places are backordered until at east june. If your gona get them Downsouthmotorsports always gives Toyota guys first crack at them. They will post a thread when they have a shipment in.

Gold Tacomas have to stick together!!

just installed billy's at 2.5 in the front and billy's and the toytec 2" aal in the rear. rides great! noticeably stiffer in the rear, especially, but not bad. the whole truck feels very controlled now (both front shocks i replaced were definitely blown).
