Re: Got some work done.

How much did the arms cost? Also, where did you buy those sway bar bushings at?

You know I've got a funny story,
My stock upper control arms have NEVER looked like the Tacoma stock arms and I was never sure why... I googled different upper control arms for our Tacos but they all looked the same but still different then mine. I pulled up pictures and compared them to my arms and they still looked different. I googled the DJM upper control arms for our Tacos and I guess google wasn't showing me the correct image because they still look different then mine. I found this thread in the active topics area and I look at your pictures and NOW I KNOW!! I have the DJM arms LOL!! Previous owner painted them black though! Now I don't have to buy them

Re: Got some work done.

Personally I'd throw some KYB Monomax instead of Toxic, but if you're set on running Toxic here's a tip for you...the # below is for front Toxic slim body shocks. 99% of the time, Toxic shocks are usually fat, like what you have pictured above. I did a install on seans truck years ago, (pictured below) and he showed up with slim body Toxics. I made sure to keep the end of the box with the part # so I could help forum members in the future.

This will ensure there's plenty of room between your coil and the body of the shock and there will be no chance the shock will ever get a hole rubbed in it and then be useless in there.

Your truck looks great btw...love those "big mouth bass" (what I call them lol) fat lip 4 runner front bumpers.

Toxic Slim Body Front 413515
