I have a 2000 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 with the TRD package and my truck came with Bilstein shocks with a Toyota label on them. I contacted Bilstein and according to them, the only way I can replace my shocks with the set that came from the factory is to go through Toyota. When I spoke with a sales rep at Bilstein, the HD Shocks are the closest match to the original equipment however the valving is different. Now I am not interested in paying double for a set of shocks by going through Toyota and was wondering if anyone has replaced their Toyota Bilsteins with a set of after market Bilstein HD Shocks. If so, how is the ride compared to the Original Toyota Bilsteins?
Thanks for any and all responses.
