    Hi all, new to TacomaWorld.

    I've been around Subaru's all my life and decided to get into a Tacoma for the use of the truck a the for the reliability. I'm looking to order some parts online and I'm struggling to understand some of the diagrams as I'm not used to truck suspensions. I apologize in advanced for my naivety.

    2004 Tacoma Xtracab V6 4X4 SR5 TRD

    With Subaru's having a wide range of aftermarket replacement parts I've never really had to use the Toyota parts site before. So, I'm going to throw out what I know that I need (think I need) and I'd love some insight. My frame is a tad bit rusty in a few areas on the truck so I'm looking to do a little restoration and reinforcement to the frame and frame components in the mean time while I save up a few dollars and time to replace the frame completely.

    I'm buying these Safe-T-Caps and having an experience welder take care of putting them on for me. If I'm not mistaken these are the front mounts for the leaf springs, correct? If so, after these have been welded on I'd like to replace the bushings and replace the hardware (nuts, bolts, etc.) that holds everything together. Can't seem to find any information anywhere and all I can find is replacements for the rear shackles.

    https://www.autorust.com/product/mi...side-tacoma-96-04-xtracab-2wd-4wd-tac-157x-p/

    Next on the list would be the brackets that hold the front end of the truck bed? I believe. Here's the part number I believe that I need. It's the mount that comes just before (towards the front of the truck) the mount stated above. Not the one directly above it. The part says No.3 LEFT and I can't seem to locate the other side. I need the mounts for both sides.

    https://parts.dandeerytoyota.com/p/...MOUNTING---NO-3-LEFT/63386777/5170635050.html

    If the part above is correct I need the whole bushing assembly (bushing, nuts bolts, etc.) that would attach to that. I found this, but I could not figure out if it was the whole assembly or if I had to buy each one of these parts individually.

    https://parts.dandeerytoyota.com/p/Body-Mount-Cushion/63124970/5220304020.html

    Like, I said. I'm not used to using the diagrams for parts and not used to the suspension on trucks. So any insight on any of this or if I should add anything to the list, I would appreciate the help. Thanks in advance.

    The first part number looks like there is a specific one for the left, but for the "right" it can be used as left or right. Makes sense.

    Also find these from the second sight I posted. There is a right specific I guess.
    PN 51705-35170. Left is PN 51706-35050

    As for the cab mounts, I don't think you can buy them as a group, but rather individual. This site has a lot of great illustrations as well but may need to bounce the part numbers off a normal site for fitment checks.

    But if you're going to buy all new body mounts, I'd suggest just buying the energy suspension body mount kit that comes with new hardware and better bushings, for probably a whole lot cheaper.

    I would do a lot more searching around here before committing to just capping the frame. You gotta get rid of the rust (inside and out) before a cap will do much good.

    You also gotta prevent the rust from coming back, which usually means fluid film. So search around for that and you'll see what people are doing to treat their frame rust.

    Those brackets though, a semi experienced fabricator could make those for you pretty easy, too.

    you'd get a harsher ride with the poly bushings, though. If it's a daily driver, I'd stick to rubber.

    I appreciate the quick responses already guys. Stiover, that diagram does seem to be a lot better and lots less links. I assume the kit that you linked has all the bushings, etc for the leaf spring mounts as well? If so, I just need some help locating some nuts and bolts to get the leaf springs reattached after restoration. I imagine the ones on there now are probably rather seized up.

    Jbrandt, my buddy and I are putting in a lot of research before we undergo this, just wanting to get everything prepped parts wise at the moment. I appreciate it.

    New leaf spring hardware can be had through the dealer but I opted to buy everything for my rear leafs from wheelers (they also have oem hardware on their site). I bought greaseable hardware but didn't end up pressing my ome bushings out to replace them. But they had literally everything. Rear leaf hardware and new shackles as well.

    Might just get ahold of the dealer and find out the part #’s for the hardware. Was just hoping somebody knew and that I could head to a hardware store and get some. I guess when ordering bushings I’m confused as to which ones go where. I don’t necessarily need any for the the rear of the leaf springs (shackles) but at the front where the mounting plate is. Are they universal?
