    Ok i went to wash my truck yesterday and noticed that my left rear shock was broken the piston rod snapped off somewhere. Also the guy i bought the truck from put a 3'' toytec spacer lift with a AAL and it was still on stock suspension is that bad to be on the stock shocks with that lift I was wondering the cheapest thing i could do to fix it or would it be ok to still drive because im trying to save up for the pro comp 6'' lift stage II

    This would be the cheapest shock to fix your problem. Also, try to find someone local that has a spare TRD bilstein shock lying around that they'll sell you or give you.

    Don't drive the truck. You could make it a lot worse.

    definitely not good to be riding on stock shocks with an add a leaf for very long. for short term you can get another stock shock for now and order some longer shocks for the rear. you need the extra length on the shock otherwise the shock has a tendency to top out and fail.
