    I just put new leafs in my tacoma. I stretched the shit out of the old shocks. They are maxed out and blown. I ordered new shocks but they will be 2 weeks. The ride is rough, will new proper length shocks make the ride better?

    New shocks are gonna help if the suspension is constantly limited by the shocks right now. What springs did you install?

    why were you running stock shocks with a full leaf pack replacement in the first place?

    but your ride should improve with shocks of the right length
