    well....if you wanna stay with stock coils and all, then probably a set of bilstein hd's will be ok for you. also....bilstein 5100's,with a little more valving, are also great shocks.

    if I don't want stock coils? What should I look into? What do you mean by "a little more valving"? Thanks.

    well, you could always lookm into a good set of ome coils for your tacoma. and as for the valving in the 5100's, what i mean is they ride a bit better than the hd bilsteins.

    check this place out.................go check out their suspensions and parts....awesome!!!

    thank you for the quick response....I see that you have a 04 and I have a 98..your input in both cases still applies to me?? For both shocks and struts and intake you replied to in the other forum?? I really appreciate the input!!!

    no problem man!! and yeah, they still apply to both, although, you may need different coils than the ones i got, its still along the same lines. the intake should be too. the deckplate mod is definitely the best bang for your buck.

    what exactly are you wanting to accomplish with the suspension on your truck??(if you dont mind me asking.....it'll give me a better idea of what to advise you on:)).
