    I know there are questions dealing with this subject but I have been unable to find my specific question. I have a 2007 DC SR5 2WD 5.7 Eng. My question is: I need to replace my struts and shocks. I tow a travel trailer and was wondering if OEM good enough or what would be recommended to put on. I intend on having this service performed by a Toyota dealership since I am unable to perform such work myself. thx in advance for suggestions.

    @ColoradoTJ had good experience with the Bilstein 6112/5160 combo with his Tundra. I believe he also had a weight distributing hitch and air bags, he's an excellent resource on towing. OME wouldn't be a bad choice either if you would like to keep costs down as well.

    I've heard good things about Dakar leafs and I'd think airbags are a good idea also.
