    I have a 6'' Fabtech lift and the shocks look like shit and they probably could be changed. What kind of shocks should i get. I dont need anything crazy. Should i just buy new Fabtech shocks and call it a day. Do shocks for tacoma have to be for a 6'' lift or will any shock for my year fit on there?

    I have a 6'' Fabtech lift too, I just purchased some Bilstein 5100's, from Downsouth Motorparts. They told me it was fine just set them at 0 and I'd get a better ride quality....im assuming you could do the same thing.

    Yeah as far as I know they are the best besides going race suspension like King brand gas shocks. Hopefully someone will chime with more info for you. Sorry I'm not that knowledgable. Just didn't want you going without someone's opinion.
