    I have had my Readylift kit on for my 05 Tacoma, Reg cab for a few months now. I have noticed the rear is very stiff when going over bumps and dips. I've searched on the forum and some say it's because the shocks are fully extended due to the incresed height from the AAL.

    If this is why it's such a stiff ride, does anyone have any suggestions with what type/brand of Rear shocks to get and where to get them for a good price?:confused:
    Also, are the mounting points of the rear shocks for a 6 lug different from a 5 lug? (just to make sure, because most sites I've looked at for rear shocks don't specify if it fits a 5lug or 6lug)
    It's my DD, but I go wheeling occasionally on some sand/dirt...

    Thanks in advance

    I've heard people suggest 5100's, the 6 lug stock TRD bilstien's, or some pro comps (can't find the thread with part no).
