    I broke my rear shock this weekend and looking to replace them. What other options beside the OME struts/shocks will fit with the kit. I have an 02 double cab and I believe a OME 882 lift. Please give input, Im riding on three's right now.

    Welcome to TW! :)

    OME shocks are the best for the OME springs.

    It seems that the OME shock are the route, but I really dont want to spend $250 for the fronts and another $170 for the rears. Im trying for the economical approach. Are there any other options for the fronts?

    Thanks for the reply.
