Toyota Tundra, Truck

Here is the low down.
I have a 2002 Tundra that I bought a month and a half ago. It is a 4X2 and I wanted to get the limited slip diff on it. Unfortunately I could not find one with the TRD package and the LSD. I did not want to order one because I did not want to miss out on the Toyota special financing. Back on November 10th no one knoew that toyota will extend the financing to the end of december.
So I got the truck with the regular stock suspension. IT IS VERY MUSHY. I really did not like it. So i ordered the blue/red HD Bilestin. These are even stiffer and more expensive than the blue/yellow Bilestin. The truck has improved enormously from stock. I just love the ride. It is stiff, but not jarring. It takes a dip and does not oscillate like before. Steering feel has improved and you feel in control over all types of rough roads. Before, on rough roads I felt like I did not have control over the truck.
The blue/red are excellent shocks. They are even better than the blue/yellow. They are also $319.00.

What are the blue/red bilsteins? Are they the sport suspension ones?
Are the direct from bilstein or a toyota thing? Never have seen blue/red ones

mine were $49.99 each (216 after shipping) from offroadwarehouse.com cheapest place other than autozone

I checked the Bilstein web site and saw no mention of the blue/red shocks. Should I return the yellow/blue? I hope when you say $319.00 that you mean for 4 of them, not each. Thanks.
Where can I get the red/blue?

Also have you looked into the Rancho 9000 series? They have an adjustible 5 settings for firm to soft.
These shocks come on the new ford FX4's (fullsize offroad pkg). They are also pretty good shocks and you can adjust the ride
Dec 27, 2001 (5:22 am)
I assume that the shocks are a total of $319., not each. Where did you get them?
Anybody else swap their shocks? What about the anti sway bar? The mushy ride is my only complaint about the truck. I have 11,000 miles and the ride is softer now than when I bought it.

I like buying stuff. I can't imagine adjusting shocks depending on road conditions. I don't go off road! I drive this thing to work and to the mall. I'm the purchaser that everyone laughs at!

Can you clarify the pricing on the red/blue shocks for me?
Dec 27, 2001 (5:28 am)
That $319 has to be for all 4. No shock i have ever seen cost that for each.
I changed my tires at 10K miles and shocks at 21K miles. Overall for $1,000 it was a huge improvement

Im gonna look at the tires that you put on your truck. They sound wider and taller than mine.
