    Just bought a 95 tacoma and the suspension seems tired. I'm not really looking for a lift, just to replace the wore out shocks, coils and leafs. What brand would you go with. Not looking to break the bank either.

    zip ties and scotch tape (duct tape is too expensive)
    I am sure somebody is having a hard time giving some stock suspension away.

    I've looked at the ome springs and shocks I had them on my 2011 and really liked them. I'm just not looking for any lift on this truck. I have a set of Trd shocks and coils from my 2011 would they not fit?

    & no, 2nd gen shocks won't work on your '95 not without modding them, as far as the coils go not a 100% sure on that..
