    I want to level my taco with shocks. What shock out there gives a great ride while still turning good?

    There are many options to consider- you really need to search the subject to get an idea of what you want to achieve with your lift. If you want to just level out the truck and improve the stock suspension, IMO the Bilstein 5100's would be hard to beat. Plus, I would not consider any spacer lift, unless your looking for just looks and do not off road really hard. Go from here, and use the search option to discover how easy it is to find info on just about everything you may want to do with your truck. Welcome to TW! :)

    What do you mean? That's one of the best ways to lift your truck if you don't Want to brake the bank.
