I was hoping to put a small lift on my 98 4runner by the time the shocks needed replacing, but it's not in the I just need some smooooth riding shocks that will stop jarring my teeth out. :) What recomendations do yall have?
I am going with 5100 Bilstiens on my '04 Taco. OMEs are another good choice.
I have some used Tokico blues that may fit your bill. 114K miles from a Tacoma owner.

If you want smooth ride just some new Tokicos might work just fine for just more money.

Bilstein HDs would work fine also. I believe those still come with a lifetime warranty. Shock Warehouse had decent prices last time I was looking years ago.

Although, not a lift shock, I have some new (<1000 miles) factory shocks from my 97 4runner I can make a deal on. I put a lift on my truck shortly after I put them on.
Any of the above are good choices. I like Bilsteins on Toyotas. By the way, you can get the 5100 series in an adjustable height model. Then you get new front struts AND a lift kit all in one! Check this link for the details. It has an application guide on the left side of your screen.

Ditto on the Bilsteins. The 5100's are great. Relatively inexpesive and ride great.
