    I have a full set of Billy shocks/coils from a 07 TRD FJ I used to have, will they fit on my Taco? Rear shocks?

    i haven't heard of anyone using it, but if you can find out the length it would help to determine if it will fit. now, it might "fit", but as to how it will damper is another story since they're valved for a FJ. on the other hand, it could work out great and you could possibly be onto something new for all of us.

    same shit as everyone else
    You have a slightly different bolt pattern in your buckets... So it will not fit. 05+ FJ's and Tacoma's can swap struts though
