    I see a set of TRD Bilsteins for sale locally.

    I have the '06 base model regular cab.

    Will the Bilsteins fit my truck without any mods?

    5 lugger- meant to mention.

    I'm betting the shocks are smaller on mine than the TRD suspension.

    the rears will fit with a lift; the fronts will not. the front suspension on the 5 lug and 6 lug trucks are NOT interchangeable.

    Thanks Kelson. When I was buying the truck back in 06, I remember noticing that the front suspensions were different. Couldn't afford to go the TRD/SR5 route b/c I was upsidedown in a F150 SuperCrew. The little five lugger is now paid for and worth $8K which is about what I was upsidedown! And only 43K miles!

    I've always liked the look of your truck with the XRunner wheels.

    Thanks for the definite clarification on the Bilstein fit.

    So if local CL guy has 4 Bilsteins from 08 TRD w/18000 miles - asking $150. Prolly take less. If anyone's interested PM me and I'll send you the link.

    they should swap over as long as you are not a 5lug...i dont think they changed anything suspension wise for 2012

    Hey I am only 13 years old... I know it is odd that I like cars, but I was woundering if you think a truck like this is a good first car??
