I have been reading for hours and most of the threads that I find are about adding lifts to our trucks or leveling out the front end. I have a 4x2 2010 double cab TRD tacoma with 57,000 miles on it and the suspension seems to be getting "bouncier" for the lack of a better word. The stealership said that the shocks should be find and I probably have a different problem and I should have the look at it ($49) to put it on the lift. I just moved to the Orlando area and do not know any reputable independent shops. I have always done the minor basics (change oil, replace brakes and rotors, etc.) myself.
I hardly ever go offorad but was looking at replacing all of the shocks with wither the bilstein 4600 or 5100. Are the 5100 a better shock even if I do not plan on using the adjustment on the front shocks?
Should the bushings and washers be changed with the shocks if reusing the original front springs?
I also looked into the AAL TSB and Toyota said that I was out of luck since I was past the 36,000 miles and said that it was "only to correct a slight squeak anyway".
Thanks for the help.
