3.5" Fox / Fabtech Coilover Nitrogen Charged Shocks

Would $300 for a pair of 3.5" Fox / Fabtech Coilover Nitrogen Charged Shocks that are slightly used be a good deal to buy?

the king remote reservoir shocks are about a hundred more each than the fox's, so buying kings are out of the question.

nope... not enough stress up front to need it... if you were LT, then the amount of travel would heat up the shocks enough to need it...

definitely hit up Sonny at Downsouth Motorsports and let him know you are a TW member... see if he has any member discounts going on...

also, surf the tacoma forums aggressively... when folks are upgrading to LT, they tend to dump their parts pretty cheap...
