    I just installed the toytec progressive leaf pack with a 1 inch block( I had the single asl and block before with 5100,s) now o know my 5100’s are too short a shock for this setup it’s now between 2.5 and 3” of lift. I don’t know what shock to use. I know if I use the Bilstein b110-p shocks they’re probably a little long for what I need and I may need to replace my factory bump stops and toytec makes an extended shock for 2-3” lift but I’ve read a lot of bad stuff about them and their warranty is terrible. Is there another shock I should be looking at? Btw I’m not concerned about flex. I’m off-road rarely mostly just concerned with affordable and good ride. I also tow 4500 lbs a couple times a month

    If your riding 2-3” of rear lift you should change out your factory bump stops

    I know I should, things are just tight right now. Changing the shocks is the most I can do right now

    Save up honestly. If things are tight now imagine if something breaks.

    cheapest option that doesnt suck would just be 5125s. A pair goes for $160-190
