    looking for suggestions on leveling/left kit for an 02 3.4L 4x4 TRD. New truck to me, has 100k. Looking to replace shocks all the way around, leaning towards the Billstein 5100s adjustable with an aal in the rear. Suggestions or comments please! Also, ive been searching the forum and seems downsouthmotorsports.com is the best place to buy these, but they are "temporarily out of stock". next best place to buy??

    Welcome to TW. Most Tacoma's do lean a little bit to the left. Seems that a lot more weight is on the left side (driver, fuel tank, battery, etc.). When I did my lift, fixing the "lean" was part of the decision to go with adjustable coilover shocks in the front rather than 5100s.

    The 5100s seem to be on backorder everywhere. Not sure there is a next best place to buy after DownSouthMotersports.
