Like a lot of manufacturers, rancho makes the shocks to fit more than one application. As you have read, the shock stated for the toyota is pretty stiff. I personally think it is a valving really made for big trucks, and not light trucks. But, I can tell you specifics. My ranchos got hot...HOTHOTHOT. Then, they leaked the slightest bit. And once they cooled down, they clunked like a bad ball joint. The damping went totally out of them, and it was a drag. I got Doesth tech shocks from downey, for a decent price, to hold me over until I have finished my rear shock relocation, and the install of some 7100's. The ride is really good, and it is a worthwhile investment of $90 or so for the pair. They don't get as hot, I have noticed. So, I am waiting for this rain to stop for a while, then I'll break out the welder again. Got me a NASTY wake up when I was welding and it started to rain the other day. No more of that shit!!
