    im going to also say that if you are looking at these for a tacoma than that is not the correct price. i actually called the store and that online price quote is for "most vehicles." I believe the over the phone quote to me was just over $200 for rear shocks and front struts

    I got ES6000's on my lift and I think they ride very well actually. Everyone who has rode in my truck said it rode smooth. Maybe I'm the exception? I don't know.
