    2005 DC TRD ...Sold 425k Now 2016DC TRD
    Hi All - Looking for opinion / fact / speculation on the following -

    Have 2005 DC TRD 4x4 now @ 355k km. I am looking to replace the front and rear shocks and front coils.

    Found used parts w/ (apparently) only 3k on them. HOWEVER they are from an 2011 TRD o/r.

    Toyota says the part numbers are different between 2005 and 2011 ... But can't actually tell me what the difference IS ... Will they fit???

    Thoughts ?

    Thanks in advance.

    Can't tell from your post or profile what you have, but there is a difference between the base/SR5/TRD Sport springs and the TRD OR springs (all Gen2 years). The OR springs are a progressive spring, while the base/SR5/Sport springs are not progressive.
