    Hello Everyone,

    I have a question if I can get some help and support from y'all, I would appreciate it.
    I own a 2003 4runner owner since 2006 and its time to swap my from and back struts since they are leaking.
    Questions.
    Would hitachi struts from a Toyota tacoma 2005-2020 fit on my 2003 4runner?
    Would bilstein struts from a Toyota tacoma 2021 fit on my 2003?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    I might be leading you in the wrong direction however, the 2006 4runner I owned had a direct swap with the 3rd gen Tacoma suspension, less the rear eyelet. You would have to purchase something from energy suspension to have them fit.

    Most times you can find a pair of take-offs for about $100 and the eyelet is maybe $30. You may also want to check Rock auto. Coincidentally, I purchased a complete front and rears from them for around $230 shipped! If you're located anywhere near Austin TX, I still have them sitting in a box Id be willing to make a deal with.

    Cheers!
