    I have toytec C/O in the front and I'm trying to think what do to with the rear now. Only around town and occasionally have my dualsport in the back. Currently have factory rear with 2" blocks
    wondered what is a better ON ROAD ride in terms of comfort.

    1. factory (3 leaf) pack with a 2" blocks and factory billys (TRD off road PKG)
    2. Dakars and OME N182 shocks
    3. Leave blocks and crappy springs and add OME N182 shocks on

    Obviously the OME set up will give me more performance in terms of load capacity and off road performance and carry the bike w/o sagging etc but how will the comfort compare?

    Option 2 would be the way I go.. If you don't want to spend the cash, at least get the OME shocks... they're phenomenal... :thumbsup:

    i know option 2 is a better way to go - as in the suspension will be "better". but what about more comfort? will it ride better than this current set up?
    ps - i understand that "better" is a relative term here......
    thanks

    The Dakars are nice :thumbsup:

    I've heard they're better than AAL. The OME rear shocks are 10,000 times better than the Stock TRD shocks. They're also 9,000 better than Bilstien 5125 shocks... :D

    My OME shocks ride better than Bilstien shocks.
