    six inch fabtech lift, 315-75-16 tires,
    I got an 01 with a 6" fabtech lift. The truck was bucking like a horse on the highway, so I replaced the rear shocks......with newer Fabtech shocks, now it feels like a Sherman Tank..every bump gives me a concussion......my buddy has the same year truck, but w/o the lift. lucky bastard has some Toikico blues, and it rides like a Cadillac. Ive been partial to Toikico for years, but apparently there's is nothing available for the taco, with a 6 inch lift. Rancho, bilstine, KYB, seems to be nothing. there has to be something out there that would make a more comfortable ride, like stock at least. without spending 8000 $ for a shock. someone out there has solved this for themselves, and knows exactly what Im talking about,...................I hope that person see's this post!!!!:mad::confused:
