I love my little 2003 Tacoma, but the ride quality was not up to par with 92,000 miles, skinny tires and worn out shocks. I could see the shiny spots on the frame where the bump stops were hitting. I put some 15 x 7 wheels and 225-70 tires on it recently, which helped with stability and ride, but the new Monroe SensaTracs really made the difference. I wanted a more stable, solid ride, with better dampening of road bumps, and that's what these provide. For this daily-driver I did not want performance handling and a buckboard-stiff ride, and these are nowhere close to that. I've used SensaTracs with success before on other vehicles, and when combined with the Buy 3- Get One free rebate, AutoPartsWAY's low price, and free shipping, they're a winner for me again. Took about 45 minutes to install. or some reason, AutoPartsWAY didn't ship the rear shocks as quickly, so I haven't put them on yet- I'm sure they'll make a positive difference as well.
