About 8 years ago I bought some air adjustable shocks for about 50$ from autozone or something for an old truck I had. They worked pretty good for what they were.

Does anybody know of any more "high end" air adjustable shocks on the market? For the rear of the taco... Looking to spend 150$ to 200$


LOL,
I said rear of taco :)

I remember using those a long time ago (Back when it was cool to raise the back of your Camaro :). I don't think he means the Rancho type shocks, these have height adjustment via air - if he's talking about the ones I'm thinking about.

Yeah those are the ones... anybody do the airbag setup in the back? or does it not lend itself to wheeling?

I am sure for wheeling they suck, however for keeping the back level under heavy load/tongue weight, they would be great. There are some that can just be deflated when not in use, and you may be able to get by offroad with them like that, but I really havent seen a setup on a tacoma close enough to see if they would limit articulation when deflated.

air shocks and airbag systems just don't work will with the taco and offroading as they tend to severely limit flex.
If you just need to haul more weight every now and then they can be nice as you just pump them up when needed and then bleed them off afterwards.

If you just want some adjustable rear shocks look into the Rancho 9000s

I bought my truck used & it came with a rear air bag setup. Its pretty sweet for leveling out the height of your truck. Mine have two spearate stems up at the lic. plate where you add air.

A freind of mine had them in the rear of a older Toyota. Worked great on road, only took a couple of off road trip to tear them up.....
