    My 02 Tacoma double cab TRD needs new shocks and I'm not sure what brand to buy. Are Bilsteins the best? The truck has 82000 miles.

    Bilstein's work well. Bought a set last year from TireRack on sale, so look around.

    It's not always about the brand, but the model of shock as well.

    Bilstein 5100s

    or

    OMEs new 9000 Series
