Tacoma suspension question

Picked up front springs and shocks and rear shocks from a 2020 TRD off road Tacoma today. Ordered new top hats and the bushings for the rear. My question is will I need a spacer in the back to make it look right and how much lift will those springs give my '05 V8.

If your current suspension is otherwise stock, you should get about 1" of lift from the Tacoma stuff. If you have collapsed XREAS, like I did, it ended up being like 3" of lift on mine. You should not need a spacer of any sort.

Did you get the correct lower bushing for the Tacoma rear shocks to work on the 4Runner?

Yes those are the ones that I got for the rears and I got KYB top pieces for the front struts off Amazon. So with the added lift in the front the rear will still look ok?

Should be fine. I used new 2007 FJ coils in the rear of mine when I replaced the XREAS. Had a slight stick bug stance but still looked fine. Easy enough to add small spacers later if you need to.

No top hat needed either. I did this mod to my ‘06. Tore out the XREAS, did the rear bushing and installed. About 2” of lift (my xreas was trashed) and looks great with 265/70r17 tires.

No top mount needed? When I got mine they were loose coils on the front struts

Yes, you need the top hat if you are unable to use your old ones.

I didn’t need to on my ‘07. But to your point, consider new rear springs if you’re replacing everything else. They’re not that expensive.

Agreed. I got my FJ rear springs from RockAuto for like $70 shipped.

I guess it just depends on what your getting from the last owner. I got the entire front strut assembly. Bolted right in.

Previous owner reused the top hats so that's why I purchased new. Wish they would have been together to save me the spring compression but local deals are hard to find.
