    Would $300 for a pair of 3.5" Fox / Fabtech Coilover Nitrogen Charged Shocks that are slightly used be a good deal to buy?

    anything bigger would be found on a trophy truck at about $1,500 per shock....

    as for your original question, $300 is about average for those coilovers...

    the king remote reservoir shocks are about a hundred more each than the fox's, so buying kings are out of the question.

    ^ Call sonny from Downsouth Motorsports and have a chat with him about what kind of offroading you do. He'll really guide you through all the options for your type of offroading and budget. he's really cool, spent about an hour on the phone with me yesterday.

    PS He has the best prices on suspension components around :thumbsup:

    nope... not enough stress up front to need it... if you were LT, then the amount of travel would heat up the shocks enough to need it...

    definitely hit up Sonny at Downsouth Motorsports and let him know you are a TW member... see if he has any member discounts going on...

    also, surf the tacoma forums aggressively... when folks are upgrading to LT, they tend to dump their parts pretty cheap...
