    I have a 2016 4-Runner SR5 premium and I'm looking to upgrade my shocks...what shocks are the best to use to have a more smooth ride?

    i honestly always found oem to be really smooth, to soak up the bumps more effectively you'd be looking at a shock with a larger body and better valving. options would be coilovers with or without an external reservoir

    Do you a lift? Or do any off roading? If not, stock shocks are the way to go.
