    I noticed this morning one of my rear shocks was leaking. I'm open to suggestions for a good replacement shock and where to buy them. My truck is an '02 DC 4x4. It doesn't have a trailer hitch, but I would like to install one next summer. I'm a little suprised at 66k miles it would need new shocks,my wife's '95 Accord still has the original rear shocks with 360k miles on it!

    Bilsten (however you spell it) always a great choice.

    Mine was changed out at 40000 miles to 5125's that I got with my Sway 2.0 but the rear was stock leafs. It got to be to much for the stock leafs so I took them out and replaced them with brand new TRD yellow Bilstein rear shocks I got from Victor of Findlay Toyota.
