Fox vs. King

Which is better and why?

-2008 Tacoma 4x4 DC V6
-On road 90% of time, do not want super stiff, like a little stiffer
-Want to be able to hit hard off-road and fast but let the suspension get the work out.
-Running toytec 1.5" AAL in the rear with bilstein 5150's.

the rear is where you want the best suspension as that's what will buck and give you the harsh ride... ditch the AAL and go with a leaf pack, and a resi rear shocks...

for the front, go with some Kings and see if you can switch out the spring rates with 600 pound springs instead of 650...
