    Hello,
    I recently went to purchase some new FOX factory replacement shocks w/reservoir, and control arms for my 2009 Tacoma TRD 4X4. I found out they put FJ rear shocks in the rear, instead of Tacoma. I was told it was because my I had my original leafs replaced in the last 3 months with better brand new ones from Toyota. I was told from a pretty good source a while back that you only put the FJ shocks when you ran a Deaver add a leaf setup, and the new factory leafs from toyota (without Deavers) work best with the Tacoma shocks. :confused:. When I went to go pick the truck up I was told they had to "work at it for a while"
    to make the FJ shocks fit.:(
    Anyways any helpful advice that I can get would be very much appreciated.
    Thanks
