the right shocks

How much of a difference in ride quality do good shocks on a sas make. I mean is it worth the extra money buying say a set of fox,kings,or bilsteins compared to a set of cheep procomps. It is my DD but usaly drive lots of gravel/pot hole roads and trails I'm still a beginner at crawling.

I dont really see the point in buying cheap shocks after spending the money on a SAS. Buying rebuildable shocks will save you money in the long run.

Buy quality rebuildable and tunable shocks. Trust me it's worth it.

No I do not own a supra... I only dream of it. I was going really close to buying one and instead I bought a tacoma haha.

Honestly the shock won't help as much as you think. You can choose a fox or a cheap pro comp and may never tell the difference.

Since you are running leaf springs I am curious, what springs in the front and can you pock a picture of your set-up?
