Does the Tacoma have strut mounts? Or just need to replace shocks?

    In the next month or so I want to replace my OEM trd shocks on my Tacoma with bilsteins HD shocks. I remembered when I replaced my struts on my Toyota Corolla I also bought front strut mounts that go on top of the springs and have a bearing in the center. Does the Tacoma have Strut Mounts that I also need to purchase when replacing the shocks??

    Question 2:

    When I am driving and I turn moderately at low speed. I hear the rear suspension creaking.. What is the cause of this?? This doesn't bother me at that much. Just want to know what is the cause and what I need did to replace?

    My Tacoma has 70k miles and stock TRD suspension.

    No you dont need anything besides the shocks themselves, they will go directly in place of your stock struts in your coil-over assembly.

    For your squeeky leafs.. this is literally the first sticky on the 2nd gen main page haha make sure to do some searching, there are literally hundreds of threads pertaining to guys doing strut replacements and installs, and here is the link to that sticky. good luck.

    Thanks for the link.

    For creeky leaf springs. Can I just spray some lubricant in between the leafs? Im sure this will be just a temporary fix.
