I can't get a definitive answer and when you look at the other threads it goes into a talk about springs and sway bars sometimes.
I would like to know if the TRD Sport shock absorbers that are bilsteins, the same as the TRD Off-Road shock absorbers that are bilsteins?
How do you know one way or the other?
Same parts number?
On toyota.com it says sports tuned and off-road tuned but that could just mean they have different springs.
I talked to both Toyota Customer service, Bilstein Customer service, a parts guy, an accessories guy, a sales person, and then a Toyota Mechanic. The Toyota Customer Service and the Bilstein customer service said the same thing that they were different shocks and tuned differently for Toyota's needs. No specifics I asked how they got that info and then they just said they looked it up in their data base.
Now if you talk to a Toyota Mechanic about the shock absorbers and the differences between the suspension this is what you get. He says that the reason that customer service tells you they are different is because they don't know any better and they are just looking at broad info not working with the parts. The TRD Sport Package and the Off-Road Package have the same shock absorbers, it when you get to the other parts that make up the different part of the "ride". They have different part numbers because they are two different truck models but they are the same shock.
The Off-Road and Sport have different springs, especially the rear springs.
When you go in to get your TSB taken care of for the rough ride, you get the Off-Road springs installed.
So in closing from a Toyota Mechanic, which I would take their word over customer service word (all they did was go through the toyota.com info and say "tuned" as well as the bilstien customer service (who said he was making a educated guess but didn't really know because he does aftermarket and sports not OEM), that the Shocks are the same and the springs are different.
