    So while attempting to install my new shocks and springs today, I discovered that my current shock mounts are rusted to hell and is impossible to move. Tried PB Blaster and a heavy duty impact gun. I went to toyota today and got a quote for 75 bucks each. I figured I could find some cheaper ones online and ran across these. What do you guys think?

    My strut "key-holed" my strut mount. The dealer didn't have the mount on hand and it was more expensive than the aftermarket parts. I bought a replacement mount from Carquest. It looked just like the factory mount. It was around 40 bucks, but I can't remember the exact price.

    Do you guys know what type of struts, I can use to replace my broken Trailmaster struts on the 6" lift. It sucks that they discontinued the lift.
