KYB strut mount kit

Hi all,
Iím looking to pick up a strut mount kit for my 2013 trail edition with KDSS so I can have my 5100ís and Eibach springs pre-assembled before I install them.
Toyota wants $268 per side for the oem parts and the KYB SM5640 kit on Amazon goes for $28 US or $41 CAN per side.
Amazon, KYB site and other auto parts sites say this kit wonít work with KDSS vehicles. Are the shocks and coils different on SR5ís vs. Trail editions? Or how theyíre mounted?
Thanks in advance for any help clarifying this!

Just found this on amazon looking at KYB SM5640 Mount Kit for my 2013 4runner trail. hopefully this answers our questions. I will try it and let the world know if it works on my vehicle.

"Replaces OEM on 5th Gen 4Runner with KDSS
By Patrick Yam on August 30, 2019 Even though the description says, excludes KDSS, these do replace the stock mounts on a 5th gen 4runner with KDSS.
I bought these, and used the bushing, and washers included with the kit. But I reused the OEM nuts, since they were in good shape, and were more robust than the ones that came with this kit.
I carefully, compared the OEM mounts to these, and they are identical"

All shock parts are interchangeable with KDSS and non-KDSS. So any top mount that fits a 5th gen will fit your 4Runner.

And just for good measure, I can confirm that I've used the SM5640 kit on my KDSS equipped vehicle.

Thanks for the replies, however i already bought a members slightly used front assemblies and robbed the strut mounts!
I installed my new suspension and tested it out on a two week road trip to Ouray and Moab. Everything went well!

Maybe a dumb question, but which top hat washer goes on top and which goes on bottom of the completed assembly? One is slightly larger and a one is a different shape.

I believe the larger flat one goes on top. The sculpted one goes on the underside and fits atop the shock shaft rod adapter.

See page 5 of this PDF for an example.
