    Suspension Question

    I recently acquired a 2008 4Runner V8, SR5 4x4. The front suspension is stock Toyota struts - possibly the original ones, but I can't be sure. In any event, I think the shocks are done, or close to it. Springs too. The front end sits pretty low - lower than the factory rake would be, yet the...

    Disconnected part found while swapping shocks. Help me identify it?

    Hey there, As my title says, I was swapping/upgrading my front shocks when I found what looks like some sort of disconnected tubing. Just looking to identify what exactly it is and if I need to fix it. I'll attach photos of how I found it and a slightly clearer view. Cheers, Logan

    What diameter shock absorbers better for KZJ78 - 2.0" or 2.5" ?

    Hi everyone, I would like to talk about shock absorbers diameter, not suspension lift value. Are there somebody who has an experience with mid-high range monotube shock absorbers on KZJ78 like King, Fox, Radflo, SAW, Bilstein and so on? It is pretty hard to get good suspension play for...

    Just some info for anyone needing to replace their rear shocks on their Lexus gx470: The Monroe 37270 OE replacement 4Runner shocks bolt right up and are about $60 for the pair. This is a great alternative to spending the hundreds of dollars for the electric shocks.

    GX470 replace shocks, keep airbags?

    On my '07 GX470 with 105k miles, I am replacing failing OEM shocks with Bilstein 5100's. The shop that's doing it for me is telling me I have to replace the airbags with springs at the same time. Is that true? Is there some reasonable argument why it's better to convert the whole system all at...
