    I have a 06 double cab long bed trd sport. I was wondering if there are shocks out there for a smoother ride besides the stock bilsteins. The shocks are about 5 years old already so its almost time for some new ones.

    should i just get a pair of stock trd sport bilsteins from someone that just took it off to do the upgrade or get some 5100s? I dont really want the extra lift, just want a smooth ride

    Im also thinking bout doing the rear tsb but it only covers the leaf springs and not shocks

    thanks fellas

    wat?
    06 is out of warranty and wont be covered under the TSB. if you replace your shocks w/ someone else's TRD takeoff's, you will end up with the same thing. you can get the 5100's all around and set the fronts to 0". should be smoother than the stocker TRDs

    I was thinking about putting the 5100s on the stock height setting. will this ride be smoother then the stock trd shocks?

    The tsb can be done on my truck because i have a CPO warranty bumper to bumper

    I'm not sure.. I think the four people before you recommended 5100s.
