    Hi folks,
    I gotta '99 SR5 Tacoma Prerunner x-cab w/ the 3RZ-FE.

    It's in need of some front shocks.
    The front pass. side shock is an oily mess. :( and the driver side is probably blown too.

    If anyone is willing to part with some rebuilt Bilsteins, or some other front shock for a decent price, please let me know.


    Thanks!

    ...I just changed the rear shocks and it fixed my axle wrap problem :D

    I you don't have luck with finding rebuilt Bilsteins, check out some of the discount codes on TW for various parts companies. I'm probably gonna use the one for RockAuto on 1 1/2 sets of shocks. Sounds like you wanna get aftermarket, but If you want stock, check out toyotapartszone.com

    Thank you for the advice folks.
    I bought Tokico TrekMasters for all 4 corners.
    From what I've read on TW the TrekMasters' reputation is really good when keeping stock Prerunner height.

    It came out to about $250 shipped for all 4...sounded cheap enough.

    Has anyone here ever tried those ultra-cheap, made in China, black tube shocks sold on Ebay?
    They look scary enough, huh?
    But what if they're actually good, wouldn't that be funny???
