    I have a full set of gently used shocks from my '05 4x4 SR5 V6 Taco (removed @ 47k). They're in very good condition, never offroad. Selling these since I recently replaced them with TSB Bilsteins. Asking $30 shipped.

    Are you asking about a trade? If so, what did you have in mind?

    How do you like the Billstiens? How did it affect your ride compared to the SR5?

    The TRD Bilstein shocks provide a "stiffer" ride but in an OK way (I guess). Certainly feels more like a truck now than a car - not so "plush".

    I'm about to add TSB Leaf Springs next. However, I've heard this'll result in an even stiffer ride and a 1-1.5" rear lift thus requiring headlight adjustment at the very least and likely a leveling kit to restore stance. I've heard in some cases, TW members claim they went back to stock (springs). We'll see...

    You'll get maybe 1" of lift with the TSB springs, and that will settle over time. No need to adjust the headlight or level the truck. I've got before and after pictures.

    The increase in rake certainly isn't noticible from your pics. Since you have an SR5 too (non-TRD) I'm curious - how would you describe the difference in ride after the TSB?

    I think it rides better than stock. It's not harsh but just feels more solid. Doesn't roll as much in turns. Good upgrade.
