what are best replacement shocks equal or better to stock quality?

I dont want a lift or anything. Just a nice ride. I have 144,000 on my 2006 sr5 trd 4x4. I've heard alot about bilstein and eibach...is one better than the other? I pull a trailer every week with a zero turn mower and two push mowers and I've noticed ride quality isn't as good as it used to be a while ago. Are the shocks the only thing that should need to be replaced?

Any help is greatly appreciated

+1 on the 5100's. They aren't that much more expensive than the common brands and are worlds apart.

You might want to check your rear leaf springs.

Yes, but he is looking to keep the truck at stock height.. So I think he'd be better off just buying 5100s front and rear




And X2 buying a new leaf pack.

Best is subjective, and better than stock opens basically every shock made. Give the MT thread a read, I just finished all 365+ pages and learned quite a bit.
