08 Tundra Shocks and Struts

I have an 08 Tundra with 105K miles and still has original shocks and struts. I want to replace. I don't really tow a lot, just occasionally. Toyota dealership quoted me about $960. Les Schwab quoted me $750 for KYB Shocks and struts (w/Lifetime Warranty) plus an alignment. Wondering if anyone has experience with KYB? The truck currently feels very rough and bottoms out and feels nothing like 50K ago. It has always been a relatively smooth ride for a truck. I can spend more and go with Bilsteins or some other brand but all I want is a smoother ride and it it 99% highway miles. Don't tow much and rarely off road.

I used KYB quick struts on my '98 Acura RL and they were great, but I don't think they are available for the Tundra. I replaced the original shocks on my '07 Tundra with 4600 series Bilstein shocks, and I run the same on my '02 Tundra.

They quoted me for KYB Excel Struts and KYB Excel Shocks for my tundra.

Okay, I checked them out and think the 4600s are better suited for the Tundra.
