    I did a 3" suspension lift on my 2005 Toyota Tacoma SR5 2WD and I still use the original rear shocks. Now I want to replace it and my question is, do I need a longer rear shocks since I lifted it? Any recomendations? Thanks in advance...
    Will this work for me....Bilstein 24-186056 4600 Series Shock Absorber

    Just never ever go offroad, or you could get the inch longer shock or so, pretty sure its only a few bucks more per shock but i havent checked in a while. My 2" AAL wrecked a new shock with about 15k on it, meanwhile the other shock with 115k was fine :rolleyes:

    Switching to OME rears fixed that as they are longer and much beefier!
