    I dont plan on lifting, maybe lowering - but I want the most comfortable stock ride? Im going to mostly Daily drive my Toy ~

    It's a 99
    Tacoma Xtracab SR5 2wd 2.4

    Thanks all !

    I drive a 2002 Transam 450HP on the weekends that is loud, obnoxious, lowered with a stiff ride to boot so I want this to be comfy ~

    Gabriel, Pro, Ultra, Max ? Price difference 10-30 bucks between each
    Bilsteins 64 bucks?
    Other options?

    what kind of truck do you have? 5 lug or 6 lug? if you plan on lowering there are a bunch of different options depending on how low you go, but for a stock height truck, bilstien always make good shocks.
