Shock Absorbers for Toyota Tundra

I have a 2002 Toyota Tundra SR5, 2W drive 4.7 V8. Other than the typical parts store, where do I look on the internet to find the right shock abosobers, both front and back, for my truck?
Thanks will have a good selection, and also might have some.

I agree with @texases. Both are good sites. When you are looking consider heavy duty or premium replacements,. As the truck adds miles everything loosens up as it wears. Ball joints and tie rod ends, especially, reduce friction as they wear. Adding firmer shocks (i.e. higher damping rates) will help calm things down and make your truck ride better with the added miles.

Even Amazon sells lots of auto parts, including shocks. Go to the automotive section and click on the “Part Finder” tab. Enter your vehicle info, then search for shock absorbers, and it will show only the parts that fit your vehicle.

Check Advance auto parts website too. With $75 purchase you get free shipping to your home and they usually have a 30% discount code online.

Found two brands that come recommended. Bilstein and Rancho. Does anyone have an opinion about either of these brands?

I have the Bilstein on my 4runner. Excellent shocks.

Rancho are just Monroe. OK shocks…I think the Bilstein are better.

Second vote for the Bilsteins. I put a set on our Suburban, they worked great for 10 years.

Much thanks to all of you who have provided advice. I will get the Bilstein’s.
I am ending this thread now.

Thanks again!!!
