Toytec Rear AAL

For those of you who have the rear AAL from Toytec (or similar), i'm wondering which shocks you are running for the rear.

How do you like them? Any problems? Up/Down travel?

Procomp ES1000's. I've had no problems with them. I got them because they were cheap.

This is the reason i posted a poll. I was interested i getting the ProComp's because of price. I've heard from a few people that these shocks are crap, but the guys at toytech recommended this over the billy's and OME shocks..

I've had them for a year now with no problems. I've wheeled them and daily driven them. I don't tow any thing and rarely haul any weight. This is my 1st truck, 1st lift, etc, so I don't have anything to compare them to. I've also heard some members say they don't like them, but I don't remember any real reasons why.

Here's my problem. Right now i have the stock shocks w/ the rear AAL. When offroading, or even hitting speed bumps there is a loud "THUNK". I'm pretty sure what's happening is the shock is too short which is causing the shock to pull down on the top mount when the wheels drop. I can actually feel the rear of the truck being "pulled down"....am i on track here?

i had that happen on my 07 when i had the tsb springs and 2" blocks. for a quick fix, i installed some 3" extenders and never had another issue on or offroad. not the best thing to do though. i'd go w/ some 5100's in the rear and u should be fine

Did you compare the stockie and 5100 in size? I looked at one from my buddies shop and the 5100 was actually a tad shorter than the stock shock. Maybe this was for a different application?

the 5100's are supposed to be made to work w/ trucks lifted 0-2". thats more than the stocks are meant to work with

so if the 5100 is physically shorter than the stock shock, how is it supposed to make up for the 0-2 inches of lift? I'm not trying to challenge your intelligence, only to understand how the 5100 will solve my problem..

i would say that the shock ur friend had wasnt specifically for a taco. bilstein specifically says that the 5100's for a taco is for 0-2" of lift.

The 5100's for the rear of the Tacoma are pretty close to the same size. However, they a microcelularurathane damper in the top of the shock that prevents topping out problems. (I got this info right from Bilstien). Once the damper starts to compress the damper allows the shock to extend about 1" further than stock when articulating in an off camber section of trail, which translates to a 2" more extension at the wheel, or close to it. Unloaded, the shocks will look the same length, but the 5100's will actually extend 1" more. I hope this makes sence.
