    Hello,

    Digging around in my favorite parts number program I noticed that on North American 200s there are two OE part numbers available for each shock.. one is standard, and another is "MEXICO SPEC." A preliminary search through my local toyota parts source suggests they are available too.

    I was curious if anyone had messed with these, or has an idea how they'd be different? Different valving? firmer?

    These are OEM toyota and as such likely only fit for stock height.. which means many here probably aren't interested, however for now leveling the front and ATs are as far as I'm going. And OEM shocks are surprisingly cheap (33 rear, 108 front)

    Thanks for any info
