    I'm running the stock TRD shocks and I've noticed since the lift the ride is pretty rough when hitting almost all bumps in the road. The guys from toytech lifts recommend to replace the front shocks with OME N140S shocks for the best ride.

    So anybody got them and noticed a difference? I'm wondering if it's worth shelling out another $300 in parts and who know's what in labor. I would do it if there's a big difference.

    First time I've had a lifted truck and I love it, just would love a smoother ride. Thanks for the help.

    Yes I have the 885 3" with med coils and AAL's. For me it's pretty bad. The truck shakes rattles and rolls on bumps. I have the flip out DVD/CD receiver and I'm scared it's gonna break with the shaking. My friends at work recommend to me to get shocks at the same time I got the lift.

    I decided to stick with stocks since I read here that they would work with the lift.

    I have the OME 885's and the N140S shocks and I cant tell the difference between when it was stock, except it takes hits MUCH better, and is super plush off road. :)

    Thanks for the info guys. Now since I'm kinda of on a budget after just putting out $2,500 for the lift, tires and wheels would it be cool just to replace the front shocks for now? Or should I save up and replace all four?

    i don't think they make the n140s anymore, the new ones are the OME9000 shocks...they're what i use but i've had them on since my lift so i wouldn't be able to tell you the difference. my ride is still pretty rough but i like it because it rides more like a truck

    The OME 90000's are valved a little more firm than the N140S's

    I did not know this, I thought it was the other way around.

    the 9000 is newer, see here
    a lot smoother? no. better? yes, depending on what coils you have and if you have spacers

    If your gonna swap the coils on the strut, you need a spring compressor.
