agreed. you will like the kyb's for street ride quality & even light duty off road or trail use, plus they will give you a little bit of lift on the front. make sure to remember there is a left & right side for the fronts.

I'm reading the info on RockAuto. It looks like the kit they have for 259 is only good for the $50 rebate, is that right? The rear shocks in the kit are not the strut-plus version, so the rebate would be for the 2 strut-plus and 2 shocks which is $50 off?

Were you able to confirm which rebate you're getting?

To close this out, I got some almost new struts off E-bay for $120 shipped. They said less than 1500miles from a 2020 4runner and they look like it. Gained a couple inches and wow does it ride better.

I’ve got a similar problem and was going to start a thread but luckily found this one. So thank you guys for the advice! Life’s pretty harsh on me lately, and I have no extra money to spend a lot on a car repair. I lost my job lately and have been looking for a new one last two weeks. No results yet. My savings aren’t that big, so I decided to spend as less as possible. I’ve read a lot of tips on helping live a frugal lifestyle. It helps me, and I see that I save about 200 dollars daily. I was considering selling a car (I live in the city, everything’s near). Do you guys think it’s a good idea?

From a fellow NH dweller, looking to do something similar and this is now on my radar. Good stuff and nice 4R!
