    Hey all so I'm on a long road trip from central canada down the coast and tonight were staying in San Fran (oakland to be exact) I noticed my truck felt weird, sure enough I guess I blew my drivers rear strut somewhere in the mountains...

    Truck is 2001 4x4 Trd
    I got some tools with me ( sockets wrenchs , the basics) so I can probably swap it was wondering if anyone knows where I can pickup a set of bilateins in the bay area? Looking for 5100's all 4 corners (adjustable front) figured might as well upgrade while I'm at it and in that case it'd way easier if I could use someone's driveway and compressor and what not so I could do all 4 ! Obviously I'd provide beer!

    If anyone can tell me where to get parts or wants to do a Canadian bro a huge solid and let me use ur driveway / air tools let me know, best reply would be to text me as well as reply here my number is
