    I am trying to assemble my Bilstein shocks and OME coils. I ordered the shock bushing set from Toytec. My question is......which bushing goes on top and which goes on bottom? There is a larger one and a smaller one. Can't find any directions anywhere.

    Me thinks the little one. Can't really remember when I did mine I kept them in order, if it were mine I'de put the little one on top, as the big one will absorbe more as the spring is compressed.

    Did you already take apart your old stuff? If you look at your original stuff - that might give you a clue of how it goes.

    I am trying to assemble a set of shocks and coils to replace the ones on the tacoma. The original ones are still on the Tacoma so I do not have them off to use for a comparison.

    Ok Toytec helped me with this issue. The larger bushing and larger washer go on top.
    I hope this information might help someone else who has the same question.
