    Appreciate the feedback.

    He's said they are priced at $800 considering the rebuild but I'll offer what you suggest.

    Thanks again.

    I paid $150 for a full set with 20k on them, one shock needed a rebuild. I think due to the down time of having no shocks for 1-2 month turns most people off to rebuilding and they just buy a new set of something else.

    Also keep in mind, that price I gave you is just for a rebuild. If they have to replace any parts then the cost goes up. It was a extra $90 to have the shaft on my rear replaced during the rebuild. The unknown costs that may pop up is what kills rebuilding for many people unless they got a real good deal.
    If all the shafts are scratched up and need to be replaced, there a extra $90 per strut tacked on to the 500-600 rebuild cost. Not trying to scare you away from getting them, but something to keep in mind.

    If possible, look under the boots (you will need a flash light for the fronts)

    Stupid question alert!

    So to confirm, anyone with a TRD Pro has to have the fox suspension rebuilt at 50k miles by the fox factory or buy a new set? I'm guessing most end up doing the latter due the impractical amount of time waiting for the rebuild for a daily driver. I'm researching lift kits so this is all new to me.

    They recommend rebuilding at 50k (normal driving) 10k for heavy offroad use. But yes, I would assume most people would either buy new aftermarket stuff or not even bother rebuilding the fox shocks. This is why I am keeping my trd offroad suspension, I can swap out the pro stuff to get it rebuilt in 30k miles (mine had 20k when I got it)

    Oh duh! That's a good idea! I have an Off-road and am thinking about doing the Pro suspension at some point and roughly calling it done. Seems like that would work well unless you add a bunch of other weight to the truck in the interim.

    The recommended rebuild interval is for aftermarket Fox shocks/struts, not the TRD Fox shocks/struts. AFAIK there is no recommended maintenance intervals for TRD Foxes. Obviously no fluid lasts forever, but I would not rebuild anything unless they were leaking or riding rough, IMO.

    Fox recommends following the standard fox maintenance schedule even for the toyota ones (since they are made by fox)

    Right, but none of it is relevant to TDR Foxes. I mean it's not bad to follow that recommendation in general, but it is not necessary, IMO.

    Here is response to my email to Fox:

    Me:
    Is it necessary to rebuild at 50k regardless, or is it just a suggestion to keep them in top shape? If mine are not leaking or exhibiting any abnormalities do I absolutely have to rebuild them?


    Thank You


    Fox:
    Hello,


    These are suggestions, decrease in performance or visual signs of wear or leaks will be key indicators.

    Well no, you also dont need to go to the dentist 2 times a year, but you do it to keep your teeth in good shape.

    If I have a high end suspension then you better believe im going to make sure its working 100%

    Ready to make the switch to keep with OEM parts on my rig. Just placed on order PTR61-35071 kit from Bam Wholesale Parts. Next order will be strut top hats. Already using Timbren in rear. Then plan half day for install after arrival.

    Does anyone know if the 2017-2019 TRD Pro fox shocks will work on a 2016 tacoma?
    I mean it makes sense that they would but every website ive looked at only has those years (2017,2018,2019,2020) for the tacoma fitment but not the 2016.

    2016-2018 are all the same, 2019 got a slight refresh, 2020 got a full refresh. They will all fit any 2016-2020 model though.

    Thanks, is there any big differences to the refresh that are worth paying for?

    19 I think was just a cosmetic change, 20 got new springs and some slight changes to the shocks. I would say probably not, but I have not used to 2020 shocks.

    none so far.
    I'm not an expert, but I'm going to go out on a limb and say Toyota probably wouldn't equip any of their vehicles with parts that MUST be replaced or serviced at 50K miles, considering what their brand reputation is supposed to represent. Fox is probably recommending 50K service maintenance as preventative maintenance and to be honest, additional fee revenue, but if you are putting your Pro through normal driving, I would imagine you would approach 100K before truly needing servicing, no different than any other vehicles suspension. Assuming it's just a regular daily driver.

    just my two cents

    What are you guys paying for used Trd pro suspensions? Someone in my area wants 1200 for one that came off a trd pro at 7500 miles of a 2017.
