    3" lift body and suspension. 32" cooper stt tires on black 16" rims. diamond plate husky tool box. header. intake. magnaflow catalytic, and flowmaster muffler or brands switched can't quite remember.
    Hey guys i just got my first tacoma about 2-3 months agoo. i always wanted one since i was little. It's a 2000 4 cyl. with a header, magnaflow catalytic converter( have to have one where i live and didn't have one on it), a flowmaster muffler, and 3" lift. i need to replace my front shocks they are leaking supposively but it feels like the almost bottom out type of feel sometimes now and i want to get them fixed before i take it up to my dads cabin. any suggestions on what kind and/or where to get good reliable ones. i have a guy that will help me install them personally so don't need to worry about that just need the actual shocks. if you guys could help me out that'd be great!

    Thanks! also any good suggestions about replacing the cv boots they're torn and not sure if i should worry about to much(even though i am) or get them fixed before it causes more damage. but i haven't gone through any real serious stuff(haven't even used the 4 wheel yet) because i'm one of those guys that wants things done right and doesn't want to ruin it

    I know you can get replacement boots but im not sure where. All pro may make them. Also just so you know, the 5100 shocks are on back order everywhere until the end of the month or so. Im waiting on them too.
