they should fit, it just needs to be rebuilt or tuned to handle the lack of weight of the 4runner vs tundra

thanks for the input guys. reading up on a few sites, the 4runner is the same weight as the tundra, about 4100 pounds. i just dont want my chick driving on blown coilovers. we'll find out in a few hours how it really feels

I'm not sure it will work due to the mounting position of the top plate. The Tundra mounting points are different and unless these have multiple mounting points it shouldn't work. Hopefully you can figure something out.

so heres the skinny, the top plate is different. the tundra bolts are about 1/8" more separated. the good news is, i was able to use the DR perch on the king shock. the UCA is at an angle more like stock (i managed to find a stock 4runner to compare). i will have to crank up the coils cause the tires are rubbing against the mud flaps at full turn and i want a bit of a cali lean GNAR!! hopefully i can get the UCA angle to come down with the coil cranked a bit. the truck feels great. stiffer than the DR's, feels more like the bilstein 5100's. theyre used so maybe thats why the feel great.
