    I have read all the shock info but no one covers a stock set up with no lift. I drive my Tacoma on the hwy for the most part. not looking to lift it anytime soon, but do need to change out ths shocks. My truck is a Prerunner V6 2007. It has a 3 leaf rear. What suggestions, if any do you have? i do some light off roading when i can. :confused:

    On my stock 4x4 Tacoma AC I went through 4 sets of crappy KYBs, averaging 10 months a set, so don't bother with those. Just swapped out with 5100s. I like 'em but don't have enough data on how well they will last.
