I overextended my rear factory shock. I knew it was going to happen one day because of the additional lift but anyway. What are the best cheap shocks i can get? Im not lookg to spend a whoel lot of money...thinking of some Ranchos or Pro Comp? I know there not the best but its what i can afford right now. Im saving for a bumper and dont want to blow the stash on Bilsteins.

Best "cheap" shock is Pro Comp. But to get a good price you need to go into 4WPW and talk with the sales reps. If you order over the web you'll get stuck for shipping and handling charges.

Doetch tech mv12's. Call Downey off road, look them up online. The shock is soft, and seems to work well. Like $80 or 90 a pair. Beats the bounce of the stockers.

MV12's are meant to be run in pairs or triplets (2 or 3 per corner). I spoke directly with DT on this.

I posted this somewhere else, but it can apply to you, ignore the parts that dont apply, and look at part number.

22-23 inches extended, let me give you a Gabriel part number (G63494) You can get these at AutoZone for $25.99 each, they are almost the same lenght as OME rears 22.5" vs 23" they are large diameter and really ride well for an economy shock. I use these on the rears of both my Tacomas. http://www.gaengineer.com/2.jpg If you look to the right you can just barely see them. I use OME struts and coils on front, and AAL on rear. If you call ARB/OME they will tell you the length, if you need a special length, Rancho can guide you by length.
