    Just as a baseline you can get a complete set (all 4 ) of Bilstein/RCD 5100's for $299 from Down South Motorsports.

    You might want to get a second opinion just to be sure, an old trick was to squirt oil on the shock, then tell you it was bad so they could sell you something, but as you say you hit some hard.....

    I've never known Schwabs to pull fishy tactics, but I don't think thats a shock.

    So 5100's it is. They are ordering a set of 5100's for the front. I will use the stock springs for now, and likely replace them with OME or Eibach when I do the rear in the spring.

    Not a bad price either. $300 installed. I wanted to order them from DSM, but schwab would not install them unless I purchased from them.

    Again, thanks to TW nation for the help!

    im pretty sure its something simple like wd40 or pb or liquid wrench... toyotas are notorious for having tight alignment bolts so he probobly hosed them down with a chemical to loosen the bolts to do the alignment...i work at a shop, we do it all the time

    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    I think it's taco bell sauce, sometimes I run over those little packets on the road.
