    I got some Rancho shocks put on with my revtek kit awhile back, maybe a year ago. And haven't liked the ride at all. Even though I got an AAL lift and a 1" block for the total 3" lift. Should it be really stiff. I just install Toytec C/O's up front and love them, but now I really tell how stiff the rear is!

    Will new/better shocks soften up my rear or make it better? Maybe bilsteins or OME shocks?

    (Going for ride quality, not off road travel)

    5100s are probably a better ride, I got 5125's and they are awesome with the AAL
