    3" lift by prev. owner. Unfortunately, he did the lift on the stock suspension, so the ride is really stiff.
    Hi there. I'm looking to replace my '05 stock suspension. Someone offered to sell me there stock off a 2012 model. Will this work for me?

    If they are similar models then yes, looks like you have a trd, so as long as he doesnt have a 4cyl 2wd (5 lug) you should be good, i dont think toyota changed any of the suspension over the years. But the trd models do have upgraded shocks compared to base models and sr5

    No problem, dont let them charge you to much, stock suspension sells for pretty cheap on this site
