Toyota OEM Rock Rails
|only regrettable mod for me: choosing a "more affordable" shock kit. Sure it was "better" than stock for a little bit, then it got sloppy fast before failing. Complete waste of money and time. |
Once I finally went to a higher end product the improvement was dramatic. In my opinion there was no value whatsoever in going with the less expensive "upgrade". Either choose tried and true replacements (mild upgrade) like OME or go for the good stuff - Radflo / Fox / King / OME BP-51 - and be really happy.
I'm planning to get the low $ Bilstein 5100 rear shocks, but if I read between the lines here, maybe it's not a good idea?
I don't know that the straight bilstein's are really an issue, as long as they aren't packaged as part of another companies setup (the rear bottom connections from some companies fall apart). Really depends on what you expect from them as well, just keeping things stock or a slight front level kit - should be fine. OME's seem to be pretty well made as a bit of an upgrade. If you are trying to do a whole lift and want better ride / control / magic then save your money for a top name setup. There can be a HUGE jump in price so it's not always an easy decision, but if you are patient and plan things out, it's worth the wait.

Now I'm thinking replace the leaky OME shocks, instead of trying the Bilsteins...
