    Hi All. I've been lurking around here for a while but I think this is my first thread.

    I'm towing a 3,500lb-rated 6x12 single-axle, v-nose with a couple motorcycles in it.

    I've got a 2005 TRD-sport with 100% stock suspension. When towing, the rear ride has been very, very harsh. Based on the research I've done here, I've already bought the Timbrens and they should be going on this weekend.

    Here's my question, I'm looking to upgrade the shocks at the same time. Seems like the consensus here is that the Bilstein 5100's are the way to go. Do you guys think this is still true for towing with the Timbrens? I do zero off-roading.


    Thanks in advance for any feedback.:thumbsup:

    An AAL will help the 3 leaf crap pack but the Timbrens should add nicer stability & peace of mind for towing. Both would be good if going 5100s all around especially with any lift.
