    So I have done this conversion, but had an issue with the hardware. The rear shock bumpers caused an INSANE squeak (they had 30k miles on them, so I'm not mad). Anybody know what part numbers I need for the shock tower hardware? (Rubber, washers, nuts, etc.)

    All you need is the rubber bushings. Why don't you use the ones from your previous shocks? Nothing wrong with the washers. Another thing is to make sure you tighten those suckers down pretty good. If that rubber bushing can move it will make a noise. Don't be afraid to crank down on those nuts. If you don't have your old bushings, take one of the PRO bushings to Auto Zone or any parts store. I'm sure they could hook you up.

    Yeah, I think I'm going to do just that. I still have my OR shocks but the bumpers look different?

    Maybe my mind is playing tricks on me, I emailed Gunny to see if they are different part numbers.

    Installed mine, no squeaks. I torqued them down to 23ft/lb, then painted over the nuts to make them look good and prevent rusting :)

    No rubbing with the larger shocks on the UCA or anything? Same size sway?

    Will TRD Fox shocks fit on TRD-Sport 2WD?
    (We have some HUDE speed bumps at the mall.)

    What about the adjustable Fox 2.0 ? Wouldn’t they be a cheaper way to go.

    id would not pay anymore than 1k for set of fox trd pro and they would have to be LOW miles in clean condition/include washers/bushings. just go w fox 2.0 level 1 kit @ headstrong for 1k+ brand new. (whiners)…"but it doesn't have the rear remote reservoirs". posers that never off road wouldn't need it anyway. those that off road tend to go for something better.

    There is a reason why OE TRD Fox shocks MSRP for $3200 and Fox 2.0 for only $1000. OE Foxes are designed and tuned specifically for Tacomas and optimized for longevity and durability.

    Overpriced, yes but not 3:1 ratio. OE stuff is usually better quality than the comparable aftermarket stuff, even if it's made by the same company. Fox manufactures these shocks/struts to the exacts specs that Toyota supplied them with. Toyota is not going to sell you a truck that's going to need shock/strut rebuild every 20k miles or so, that's just bad publicity. Instead they are designed to last possibly a lifetime of the truck to appease general public. Le's get real, majority of buyers are not looking forward to modding, frequent maintenance or an early repair bill, IMO.

    Point taken. Best price I found for the OEM Fox was about $2500 and see the value in this.

    No rubbing. The Pro uses the same UCA's.

    The Pro swaybar is the same as the Sport, Limited and the SR. The OR swaybar is actually 2mm smaller diameter.
