    I wanna replace mine in a few months... I haven't really read up on the subject. I got a prerunner so I wont need anything super insanely off-road, but would like a good shock.

    Im not even sure on the kit yet either haha Im either goin chaos or burg or built right in San Diego if you ever heard of them. All these kits can mount either of the three shocks i posted though. 4 or 5 of my buddies have always ran sway aways and love them. People i know with kings like them but say they have shitty customer service and have noticed rust on their shafts and leaking seals. I have not heard anything about fox's how do you like them?

    I have foxs on the front and kings on the back, I have had no issue with either set. It will come down to cost and availability when I add bypasses to the front and coil overs to the rear. Leaning toward kings but that's personal preference, with no real problems behind it.
