I would like to get at least 50,000 w/o issues but donít know anything about shocks like these. Before I order just making sure thereís no downside like that.
Mine are IFP so they lasted, I dunno, maybe 10k before they started leaking a little and 13k before they had to be pulled.

The reservoirs should help a great deal by reducing operating pressures. But I don't know if beyond 25k is realistic with actual off-pavement use.

I think the only reason stock suspensions used off pavement last longer is because they force very low speeds. And though my Subaru did not leak at 70k, the shocks were not performing the way they should. So I guess the springs mask the deficiencies of stock shocks.

I put Firestone airbags on the rear to avoid shock fade with the BOSS monotube shocks, don't need resi shocks. Rear articulation is still good because I remove the rear sway bar. The airbags can be pumped up to handle highway speeds instead of the rear swaybar, deflate for offroad articulation.

Airbags are a cheap alternative to expensive rear suspension mods, especially if you tow. I tow 4klbs and still go offroad once I unhook. Everything is compromises be it cost, offroading, towing.

You put those lift coils on and longer shocks on the rear you won't get the additional articulation until you remove the rear swaybar. Then when you remove the rear swaybar the brake lines get stretched so you have to add extended brake lines.

@MAST4R thank you for the help and advice again

Just to follow up with what I had ordered

Front
-SPC Adjustable UCA’s
-New OEM LCA’s
-SPC cam bolts X2 pair
-Bilstein 6112 w/650# Bilstein springs
-KYB tophats X2
-Durobumps front bump stops X2


Rear
-Fox 2.0 w/Resis from Accutune with the Adventure tune (nobody I could find had the Icon 2.0 w/ resi’s and were about 3 months out)
-Durobump Rear bump stops X2

The 6112’s came in yesterday and those things are BEEF compared to the 5100’s!
The rest should be trickling in this next week starting Monday

@flipflopnfly Those are great points about the airbags. I have installed 8-1/2” Airlift 1000’s on mine earlier this month so time will tell for me. I don’t tow yet with mine but weight in the back sure sagged the ass end before the bags.

On a different note, do you know a source of used parts from junk yards or a reliable source of discounted OEM parts? Lots on ebay but who knows if those are really oem parts.

I am new to Toyota so I have not needed to learn that.

I want to buy 1x steering rods, inner/end to carry for trail spares but I don't want either dealer pricing or a cheapo part that will fail before I am out of the trail, lol.

I see junk yards sell entire racks, which makes sense, but not in my case.

You got it! A little apprehensive after hearing how stiff they are. Hopefully the revalving/tuning makes them ride nice on and off road.

I really donít. Years ago when I lived in the Phoenix area I would go to the pick and pull junkyards for things I needed for other vehicles but this is my 1st Toyota as well.

True about EBay and I guess you never know.

If you did the pick and pull in person you would know they were OEM. Iím reluctant as well, even ordering new. A lot of stuff on EBay claims OEM but I donít trust that they all are.
