    Has anyone tried the Monroe Quick Struts on a 1st Gen Tacoma, or any Tacoma? I am in the market for new shocks, but the idea of compressing the coils doesn't sound fun. I was just wondering if these Quick Struts were a good option.

    I know the Bilstein 5100's are good, but how about the regular Bilstein. I use my Tacoma as a daily driver, and rarely go off road.

    I put them on my 03 and am very happy with them. Rides like it did when it was new.
