Rear shocks

I just installed the eibach /toytec coilovers and love them. I used blocks to lift the rear 1". Now I'm going to get rear shocks.

For 70% highway driving and 30% back roads and logging rds. Occasionally towing limited to a boat. What shocks would be best? Bilsteins, fox, icon, boss.... Looking to spend under 350 or so.

Ditch the block and use Toytec shackles.

Maybe a Bilstein 5100 for the shock?

I've heard the 5100s are a stiffer ride. Anyone know what the fox 2.0 monotube are like on the rd and rougher dirt rds?

Bilstein 5160's. It's a truck. Get a true truck rear shock.

I'm not completely useless. I can always be used as a bad example.

Any idea how they compare to the fox or icons?

I can certainly tell you my 6112/5160 combo is a rough/stiff ride..
But I'd run those Toytec shackles instead of your cheap rear block.

There is no difference in the ride between a 5160 and rear 5100, I've had both.
The 5160 is a 5100 with a reservoir.
I should have kept the rear 5100s.
The 5160 just looks cooler and costs more...

Yeah you said that, twice. I'm curious about the shocks. I have a set of shackles on my work bench.

Like others have said, swap the block for some shackles.

Iím running the 6112/5100 combo and love it. Firm on the smooth roads and plush on the big bumps. Perfect for my uses. Iím running 5100ís on the Sequoia as well with zero complaints.

If you read past the first sentence I did give you some input on the bilstein shocks.

I did. Just not sure how this turned into a shackle discussion, repeatedly.

Now I've stated it 3 times...

Lighten up Francis..

Welcome to the forum..
I don't have an attitude at all. Just stated facts. Don't get defensive about it.

I would ditch the blocks and install the shackles, you'll end up with a better ride
