My 97 4-Runner is in need of new shocks. The majority of my driving is highway/city, with very little off pavement driving. I do not even engage 4-wheel drive unless some snow hits the road.
I would like a firm ride, but something also comfortable on long road trips.

Based on that information what brand/type of shocks would you recommend?

Thanks to all that help.

Rich, get the Bilstein shocks. They might be higher priced than other shocks, but they are worth every penny. KYBs are very stiff, but the Bils give a great ride. Since you have a 4Runner you might want to check out www.yotatech.com . It's a board with a great set of guys with tons of knowledge about Yota rigs. Give'em a try... I think you'll like it!

I agree with the Bilstein's, I run them on my yota and its great. Beens you said you want a comfortable ride for road trips maybe Rancho 9000's or RSX. Those are a little softer then Bilstein's. Up to you though
