    Do Tacoma front coilover fit new 4Runner? I have Kings on my 2015 Tacoma and if they'll fit a new 2018 T4R, that would be awesome.

    What length and strength spring do the 4R use?
    It's printed on spring if someone with kings on a 4R can look for us.

    Tacoma has 14 inch 650 lb springs.

    Looks like length both collapsed and extended of shock are pretty close per King specs.

    Anyone?
    Some websites show certain Fox & Bilstien being same item number for Tacoma & 4Runner. Not king though. Guess I may need to contact them directly.

    My guess is that the valving and spring rate might be a little different for the t4r. Id give them a call to verify that they will work

    I got the answer direct from King.
    1. Shock itself has a slightly longer stroke for Tacoma but close enough that you could interchange if desired.
    2. Valving is different.
    3. Suggested springs are stiffer for Tacoma. Standard spring is 600lb on Tacoma coilover and 550lb for T4R.
    4. T4R needs longer hose for reservoir.
    5. Angle of fittings for resi hose is different.

    Good info, thanks for posting. You going to be swapping your kings over from the taco to the t4r?

    Nah. Just left them on the Tacoma when I traded it in. To me, it wasn't worth the hassle & expense of uninstalling plus shipping them off for new springs, valving, hoses, etc. I'll try something different on the 4R lift eventually.

    If I had had a non-resi coilover like Fox or Icon, I might have kept them. They would have at least been simple bolt on with no hose fittings getting in the way although the ride would have been stiff and I might have hated them anyway. We won't know for sure until someone tries it.
