    not really a useful thread in the least ladies and fellas but i'm kinda proud of it. Just rolled over 250 000kms on my 05 dc lb trd sport, with no major maintenance issues except last year had to do a full brake job because i had one seized caliper, oh and i had both wheel bearings go.

    I suspect all four shocks are blown now though, oh and because of the leaf springs you can hear me comin from miles away but i love every bit of this truck it owes me nothing

    If your shocks are blown, you will continuously bounce up and down from a bump... is this the case? :)

    oh yeah i know they are blown i am just doing the whole if i refuse to accept it then it isnt true thing right now. i know the shocks are roasted i bounce off the springs both front and back over flat roads lets alone a washout or something but being up in canada makes it prit near impossible to get 5100s which is what i want

    Well I live about an hour from you and have a good set of Front sport coilovers (billies) and rear sport shocks (billies) and a stock 4 leaf pack for sale pretty cheap. I just replaced my stock with Dakar rear and Radflo coilovers.
