    Fox makes adjustable rear shocks. Other than that you could buy new leaf packs. OME has a good set the have an overload leaf. I would try that first. Then if you want shocks get those.

    Yea. But I would rather have to buy a few things to suit the needs and it be a tacoma, rather than drive a ford, chevy, or dodge.

    All unless your towing heavy loads and the OP is not.
