    I have a stock '99 TRD with aged front and rear shocks - getting plenty of diving and rolling in corners and braking - so one can imagine the dismay with the apparent, nationwide backorder on the highly regarded Billy 5100s. I'm was hoping to use 5100s to firm the ride, but with the wait now, are there any other comparable shocks? I'm not looking for serious off-roading upgrades here, but def need solid shocks for towing and backcountry trips. Suggestions?

    yeah nothing will compare to them for what you're looking for so i'd just wait or see if http://www.shockwarehouse.com/ has them like 98tacoma27 said.
