    idk it doesn't say nothing else but that. a actually never went to the site but thanks for posting it haha i need a new seal because it leaks i little bit, only then i wash it with pressure im pretty sure its the new port, its an old model. If you see the picture of the brand in the back it has the date in when it was made.

    Nice truck but please dont paint them red kinda looks ricey IMO . Also looks like your running the 5" trailmaster lift those where horrible prolly why you cant find them anymore. My cousin had one on his tacoma and the front strut blew out going down the interstate almost totaled his truck because of it. We did a fabtech knuckle swap on it and fixed it though here is the link to that:

    Yeah basically you throw away that strut crap on the trailmaster lift and replace it with a fabtech knuckle and stock upper control arms. It very easy to do but those knuckles are EXPENSIVE last time i looked i think they was selling for 800 for the pair, they might even be discontinued. If you ever ran across a fabtech tacoma parting out they then you could get them. I was parting out my old lift and sold my upper control arms and fabtech knuckles to my cousin for $650. So yeah its not a "cheap" mod but if you could find those knuckles at the right price id pick them up. Also what type of rear lift are you running? Reason i ask i have a set of Allpro 5in springs that im selling if your interested.
