    i have an 06 tacoma full trd off road packages with the trd bilstein shocks my truck now has 56000 miles on it . In my opinion i think the shocks are wore out, How can i tell?
    my truck..
    -vibrates at high speed
    -jerks to the left or right when i hit pot holes or bumps
    -feels likes its struggling for traction or going side ways around turns but the tires arent spinning rapidly
    -steering wheel pulls sideways if im off road and do drifts and hit bumps(hard to explain)
    what r some other signs and r these suspention or just my imagination

    more than likely at least the rear leafs are beat.
    but 56k on stocks its probly time to change it.
    when you hit a bump does it keep on bouncing for a bit? then thats bad shock absorbers/struts.
    your vibes n bump steering could be things are worn and /or you need an alignment and balance.
    good luck

    sounds like an alignment problem too.
