    Hi, I have an 05 Taco xcab sr5 4banger and I'm looking to upgrade the shocks. I don't want to change ride height and don't do any off-roading,, just looking for a firmer, sportier ride. I want the Bilsteins like in the prerunner but I'm told they haven't made it to the US market yet. Any suggestions?

    Also, for those of you who are tired of looking at those goofy plugs where your fog lights should be and don't want to shell our $400 for factory jobs, try the OEM style lights from Racing_guys on EBAY, $100 plus shipping.

    Wow, this site sure seems deserted, is anybody out there or are you all on Tundrasolutions.com?

    see ya

    if you just want stiffer shocks to improve the "sportiness" try some KYB Monomax shocks. i'm running them right now and i absolutely love them.

    I had KYB monomax on a 3/4 ton 4x4 and they were great. When I need to replace mine on the Taco that is what I'm going with. I also have the 4banger and I am dying to find the right lights for the bumper.
