I live around alot of old dirt roads in my part of PA, and sometimes the rear end loves to kick out and go sideways on the bumpy back roads. Sure it's fun, but it gets annoying after awhile... so much I won't go on any Interstates with the truck for fear that I would hit a crazy bump and have the truck bounce and kick out. I was looking at upgrading the rear suspension of the vehicle, mainly the shocks for now.
My truck is a 2001 Tacoma SR5 with 154k miles (It probably has the stock shocks and clutch for all I know). As far as I know, I have no lift on the vehicle. I looked between the frame and body and there are no spacers and the suspension looks very stock. I was looking at the Bilstein 5100 series after searching on here and reading everyones input and liking them. The only reason my truck looks higher is because I'm running Firestone Destination M/T 265/85/R16's
I'm new to modding trucks. Since I have the stock height, should I look at any particular type of shock? From working on tuner cars it was a shock was a shock no matter how stock or lowered your car is. Or since I'm stock would I be better off just getting a regular shock that's not as fancy? I'm not looking for anything adjustable, just shocks shocks. When I was searching I saw that alot of places would say "use this if you have this lift, or use that for that lift"
When I drive I go on and offroad, I like to play in the mud a bit, I don't do any hillclimbs or rock climbing, so I won't need anything insane.
