    hello.
    Ived been taking my taco out hunting alot this season. the road was very rough and rocky somtimes. now my taco doesnt handle good anymore. when you hit a corner, i can feel the body roll alot.

    does this mean my shocks are dead? i have tokico on the suspension right now

    thanks
