    Sounds crazy, but I need to soften the ride on my 2001 Quad cab with the TRD package. Wife says she is tired of the semi rough ride when running long distance.

    I do not want to purchase another vehicle, and have told her she is not getting a CTS.:mad:

    Any ideas, Thanks

    What suspension mods do you currently have on it now? Does she know she's riding in a truck?

    If the suspension is stock still, I would upgrade to 5100's....

    It rides way better then the TRD suspension!
