    New to taco world. Mostly trying to figure out what a good leveling kit would be for my yota. Been looking at the HBS levelers, as I have Ride-rites on the back..

    Welcome to TW! If your looking for a lift on a budget, look at the Bilstien 5100 shocks. They are height adjustable.

    That is heading towards my next question. I am new to the world of suspension mods and know nothing about shocks. Being that the truck is ten years old, I'm guessing it wouldn't be a bad idea to replace the shocks, as they were stock non TRD to begin with. Still recommending the Bilstein 5100? or is there something better for a couple hundred more? Again, not really looking for a lift, just a level. And of course, a smooth ride.

    For a bit more money, You can go with an Old Man Emu shocks and springs, or a set of "Coilovers" such as, Sway-A-Way, Icon, Camburg, etc. All depends on how much you want to spend
