    Hey, i'm new to this forum but i was just wondering if anyone had recommendations for a super basic front shock on my 2002 tacoma prerunner....it's a 3.4 with trd and locking diffs...

    it has a 2" front lift, and i wanted some low budget shocks(190,000 miles and selling it soon)...i seem to have a hard time finding shocks that are compatible and work with a 2" lift on that truck....any help would be greatly appreciated....

    Welcome to TW! The Bilstien 5100's are about the best OEM replacement for the money.

    Good choice! :thumbsup:

    One of the best places from which you can buy them is DSM. Remember to ask about the TW member discount... :wink:
