    Ok i have 2 question..

    1. what are good shock for stock truck.
    I drive hard, fast and on twistey roads.

    looking for Good cost and high cost...

    2. what is the widest wheel and tire combo that can be added to a stock truck. with out rubbing.. i know most of you get lifted and add off road tires. Well that is not my thing.. i do love the Pre-runner look, but I am more a lower truck guy as i drive to fast to go up... i should go down...

    any help would be great.

    As for shocks....I guess it all depends on what you're looking for.

    I had a set of OME shocks on my previous tacoma - and they wore well and rode nice. However - they're more expensive.

    Another recommendation - although never had them on a stock truck....is Doetsch Tech Shocks paticularly the Prerunner variety.
    These are about $40 (give or take) each.

    I personally hate Rancho, they don't last very long and I've had a couple of them leak.

    Sell your Taco and buy an X Runner. If you want to go fast and be low, thats what you need.
