    Hello everyone,
    I have a 2004 Tacoma with a 6" Fabtech lift installed. My front and rear shocks have gone bad. I was looking to purchase Bilstein 5150 for the rear. I'm also looking to upgrade the front with coilovers but I don't know what would work well with the 6 inch fabtech lift. Im lookin for a quality ride as well as performance because I usually bring my truck off roading on weekends. Any suggestions would be welcome. Thanks.

    Icon and king make replacement coilovers. Also there are several good options for the rear.

    give downsouth motorsports a call about the length of the shocks you'll need. they carry pretty much everything you'll need and provide a tw member discount
