    I just made the switch from a Tacoma to a Tundra about 2 months ago. I did this to be able to pull a larger camper. I have a 2012 Tundra 4x2 with the TRD Off Road Package. The shocks in the rear however are allowing for way to much of a drop when I hook the camper up, even with a weight distribution hitch. What rear shocks do you recommend that would be a little more stiffer when hauling a camper?

    rear shocks dont support the ass end of your truck. you need add a leafs, or a firestone riderite airbag system.

    you could also replace the leaf pack to a stiffer pack but it would make it ride like shit when unloaded.

    I would like a 1/2 way decent ride when not pulling due to it being a daily driver with around 4000 miles a month

    all the rear shocks do is dampen the rear suspension.

    firestone riderite is your best bet. pumps up when you tow to not sag, and rides like stock when unloaded. IIRC its not priced that badly. i have AAL packs in my truck, and i havent towed anything yet that would make it squat, including a 2 place trailer with two sleds.
