    :)usually would not join a forum, but tacomas rule and i love my truck, so I had to join, whats up everyone...hope all is good. So in the past year I have put in a new engine, water-pump, radiator, alternator, starter, drive-shafts, solid rear shaft, U-joints with the shaft without fail obviously. i put on the top monroe shocks i could buy, new battery, all new vaccum lines, top market brakes all the way around with parts kit. All in all I had the money so I sank it in the truck i love. Runs so awesome it calls to be driven. So I was going to do my struts next. Anyone got any brands and models they would like to share with me, the monroes are good, decent smooth ride, lot better control then what i had, factory with 223,000mi, the monroes were not worth the money to me though. wana try something else, will pay to a point if its worth it, i would like to keep it under $150 a side, any adivce is great, its a 96 3.4L 4x4 sr5 once again Tacomas Rule!!! Hello to everyone
