Questions and answers of the customers
Will these fit on my 2004 SR5 4WD 4runner?
Q Will these fit on my 2004 SR5 4WD 4runner?
I ordered this pair of struts back in December, 2020, and finally got around to assembling them. I noticed one of the spacers was missing, the one that is located where the threaded part of the stem transitions to the smooth part of the shaft. Without it, the bottom washer and stem cushion are very loose and move around. The other strut assembled perfectly. Can you tell me how to get a replacement, or how to go about ordering one (part number, name of part)? Need one ASAP, as I've already begun to put the vehicle together. I've made sure to vigorously look and made sure it never came in the box! Thanks for your help.

I have a 2002 4WD SR5 4runner. Im and planning on using these with OME 881 springs that give a 2.5in lift. What setting should the shocks be set to to keep the lift under 3in
- So this version is the old version with 3 settings but offers more total lift (2.5")? As opposed to the version with 4 settings sold in the set here, which maxes out at 2" lift? https://bilsteinlifts.com/shop/toyota-tacoma/1995-2004/shocks-95-04/bilstein-5100-0-2-inch-front-1-1-5-inch-rear-lift-shocks-for-1995-2004-toyota-tacoma-4wd/

Q Is this the pair or just 1 an would this work with my leveling lit? answer nowA Priced per pair of shocks. It can lift the front up to 2.5'' by itself using height adjustment so the leveling kit is to be removed not to exceed 3'' of lift and not to damage the suspension
2001 4runner 4wd. From what I am seeing to achieve a total of 3” of lift I’ll want these shocks and the Toytec/Eibach springs with the shocks at the 2nd setting correct? Would there be any benefit to going with 00-06 Tundra components?
- Would any damage occur to the shocks if I use these with factory 2001 4Runner coils? Or is it necessary to use an aftermarket coil?
- I see review said the shock boots aren't provided. Are they needed? or do they come with them?
Q I see review said the shock boots aren't provided. Are they needed? or do they come with them? answer nowA You don't need the boots because they are only there for looks but don't actually serve any purpose because the shocks are sealed. I can't say if the shock will come with a boot or not and there isn't any special pricing for the shock with or without the boots.
