    Hi everyone first post. I just bought a 07 Tacoma and it has 77000miles on it and debating changing out the shocks on both front and rear just to be on the safe side. I have a found a great deal on shocks of a 2011 Tacoma but am wondering if they will fit onto a 2007 Tacoma. I talked to dealer and he seams to think they will but just wondering if anyone knows for sure. The truck I bought is American but the shocks are off a Canadian model not sure if that makes a difference. Any help will be appreciated. Or would it be worth it to buy air bags for the rear shocks?

    Yes they will fit, and do you tow a lot? Air bags would only be good using them while under load.

    Not towing a lot or that often was just wondering if that would be better than the shocks? The truck creeks a lot when I get in and out so I'm just assuming its the shocks and that they are getting worn out. Is there a way to check to see if they are bad or not. Also is better to do all the shocks at once or just replace the ones that are bad
