    Ok so my rear shocks are almost out they are making funny noises and the ride is super bumpy. they are the original shocks and i have 75k miles on the truck its a 2005 dc trd OR. I dont off road with this truck at all if anything i do down the beach and drive it in a little sand. Now here is what i am thinking to get

    Rear Nitrogen Charged ProComp Shocks and Toyotec AAL .... i am getting both these things for about $300 installed ....

    My front ones can wait and next month or so i will get some billy 5100s which i am not worried abt right now.

    What do you guys think ? Am i doing the right thing ? Should i do anything different ? Keep in mind my budget is tight and i want to be around the same $300 range .... Thanks for the help in advance ...

    I did the Toytec TSB AAL, and I had to do the Carrier Bearing drop right afterwards. Now that it has settled, everything is perfect. I am not super familiar with those shocks, but damn near anything is better than the Stock Rears.. DO IT!

    one question though.. if you are doing the front 5100's, why wouldn't you do the same in rear? price?

    Your much better off getting the Bilstien 5100's for the rear.

    thanks guys ...... appreciate it ... my truck is not under waranty and i bought it used from the dealer and therefore i am not sure how the waranty is going to work. I think i am just going to go with bilsteins then i am better off putting a lil more money and getting better shocks ...
