    I'm looking to replace my Stock TRD Sport shocks with either the original stock shocks or aftermarket replacement. I don't want a lift at the moment as the truck is still my daily driver and don't want the bad gas mileage associated with lifts as I drive 40 miles a day to and from work. I'm looking at replacing the shocks within the next couple weeks so I'd appreciate any advice. I have an 06 double cab 6 speed with 78,000 miles.

    Selling my stockers in the BST section, 4500 miles on them make me an offer.

    Foglights are for fog, not oncoming traffic!
    I just replaced shocks on my 06 DC Sport at 106k.
    Had the stock yellow Billies on it.
    I put 5100's all around, did not use a lift perch on front, set at lowest setting.
    I got a wee bit of lift from the shocks but the ride is sooooo much better.
    Much smoother, better damping.
    The ride was pretty stiff with the old shocks on it.
    I recommend the Billies with no lift setting.
