    Sounds like you answered yourself in your question. Go OEM if they have worked for you so far.

    I replaced my old originals with new ones from the Toyota Dealer. They were pricey but gave exactly the same ride. I tried to find them from Tokico who makes them for Toyota but I didn't really find any.

    Shocks don't adjust ride height. Just the springs.

    I went with 5100 billys- the old one were really bad so not sure they were a good reference point, bu t I'm pretty much level now.

    Kept mine stock as well. Can’t remember brand, from AdvanceAuto. Originals weren’t bad but had 250k on’em. Why just the back? Front already good? I would do all four at once. And I would add a spacer to the rear if it sags? Mine does...:(

    Maybe pick up an OEM set for free. I had a set from my Tacoma with 1000 km on them that I “Sold” on Kijiji to the highest donation for someone’s local humane society. I remember they raised $125.
