Keep us posted! KDSS was/is a concern of mine at EOL. Unlike XREAS, there is no off the shelf "down grade" replacement that I'm aware of. So in short I too wonder what fixed end links will be like. Your are brave!

Just ordered a 2024 TRD Offroad premium+ with KDSS. Did a lot of research on the system beforehand and I'm excited. I've driven stock 5th gen 4runners without and noticed a lot of nose dive and body roll. Excited to try out KDSS!

Iíve got your switch and it makes a nice difference for those situations where there is rough road, but I still want to drive above 12 mph. Nice work Dom!

None. Kdss control helps keeps things balanced.

I just had my front KDSS piston replaced a week before the bumper to bumper warranty ran out. Discovered it 2.5 months before the end of the warranty while swapping my winter wheels on. I had to wait a month and a half for the Toyota dealer to get the special service tool in to bleed the system after replacing the shock.

Ok, so I read through about half (or more) of this thread.

Didnt see this brought up, so maybe someone can answer: if KDSS does act up, or fail, can you just remove everything and throw an SR5 sway bar on?

Someone with more knowledge feel free to correct me but from what I understand, no. The swaybar mounts on the frame required are not present on a KDSS 4Runner.

Yes 100% you can. Iíve help about 2-3 guys do it. Only thing is you will need to get some tabs welded on the frame for rear sway bar. In my world that is really easy to do. The rest of it is all there already.
