    I have a 2003 (ext.cab) 2.4 Tacoma. Someone mentioned to me getting air shocks. This is a new area for me. What kind should I get? (I have a 'Versahauler' scooter carrier that I carry my Honda Ruckus [200 lbs.?] on; then behind that a 'Lees-ure Lite' Tent Trailer [tongue weight - 17 lbs.).
    Any info/referral will help...Thanx, D.Farlessa

    I called around & didn't get any positive results locating any mfg. for a Toyota app. As long as they (Monroe) fit, I'll give em a try. Thanx again. Like your location of the air fill valve too.

    Is your truck a 2wd???

    The newest vehicle on the list from monroe that the shocks fit on is around 1975...and thats the list that parts stores go off of. So you will never find them saying that they will fit. Some people on CT just started playing around with them and found ones with the right length. But as long as you have not modified your leaf pack these will work great. I just filled them up to 50 a couple of days ago and hauled 2 dirtbikes in the bed, these shocks are a miracle worker.
