    I just added the add a leaf to my 02 Tacoma and now my shocks are too short, so I have 2 questions. First will it settle down if so how much and how long will it take and secondly if I get new shocks where can I get them from, they would have to be 1-2 inches over stock. In the mean time I am going to add some weight in the box to try and settle it down.

    Small lift and a topper!
    Bilstein 5100s or OME rear shocks - they both make a shock for the stock mounting location that is longer travel for up to 3" rear lift. ~$150-$180. Any of the major vendors here can supply them - I just bought a set of 5100s from Wheelers Offroad.

    I just read another post and I think that maybe I switched the shocks, apparently the driver side is shorter than the pass side, I had to get someone to bounce the rear in order to hook up the shock. Thanks phidaux if I have to get new ones then I will check out the billys.
