    I currently have the 2.7 5 lug access cab tacoma with the fat bobs lift. the two rear shocks that they provide you with have had the seals bust. Im looking to upgrade all 4 of my shocks because im passed the 50k mile mark.

    Any suggestions? Im looking for decent to high quality somewhere within the $500-700 area. I know that regular bilsteins will work because of the lift.

    Please help :)

    I'm running the 5-lug bilstein HD struts in the front and the HD shocks for a 6-lug in the rear. Rides pretty well (firm) for me. Since you're lifted, the 5100's are also an option for the rear.
