    There are a lot better options out there, including OME shocks and springs, or Bilstein 5100's shocks.

    i have rancho's 5000 in the front , cuase they were so cheap in price and the stocks were so badly blown, and they are not that bad, they ride nice . Id say all brands works, if your not low on funds go with Bilstein

    Bilstein 5100's are under $200 for the fronts, and you can get the rears for $100. They aren't gong to break the bank.

    I know, but the Rancho's are cheaper, and for me Bilstein is breaking my bank , a college student with no job , and $0 bank account currently , i broke that bank!

    Bad analogy i know, I should have refferd it to a dozer as i use to opperate one. they were insalled in a ranger on setting 1 most likely the truck was to light for the shocks. but the tacomas are not much hevier
