    You can try Texas Motorworx in Farmers Branch. I think they're mostly a Ford Raptor shop, but I went in once to ask about rebuilding my Kings. Dude was kind of a jerk when I told him that I had a Tacoma, but eased up when I said I'd bring the shocks to him off the truck to rebuild. I also checked with Smith who was cheaper. In the end, I didn't get them rebuilt as my problem was elsewhere.

    I may just skip the revalving and do it myself, looks to cost about $100 in seals and oil. Doesn’t look complicated at all

    Do you have the means/tools to recharge the nitrogen?

    I wonder if the rest of the plates will work with the TRD skid. I hope they do.

    Those are worth looking into.

    One thing at a time right now. My UCAs and AALs came in a couple of days ago. I'm still waiting on the shocks. Accutune said that the front shocks were in stock but the rears would be another couple of weeks. I think they are going to ship them together.

    Putting in a plug for Tandem Off-Road in Haltom City. I took my truck there for an alignment after a botched job at Meineke. I installed Elka 2.0s all around, new UCAs and AALs. Somehow the Meineke shop tried to disassemble my steering rack, tried to adjust the ride height on my rear shocks (what???), AND lost the lower shock bolt and one of the spacers.

    Tandem checked over everything that might have been touched by the Meineke shop, took care of the alignment quickly, and ordered new hardware and spacers from Elka. They just became an authorized dealer for Elka too, so just a heads up if you're looking locally. The dudes there are awesome and all the Toyotas in the lot made me feel comfortable trusting them with my truck.

    10/10 recommend Tandem for anything you might need for your truck.

    No. Since it kept getting pushed back and my vehicle bit the dust I had to go purchase a vehicle. Want to help someone get the deal I got.
