    Will the 2016 Tacoma TRD Sport/OffRoad suspension fit on a 2016 Runner sr5? I see a lot of locals selling this full suspension for pretty cheap in my opinion. Also would it do me any goo to purchase the UCA's for my lift? Any advice would be appreciated ✌️ Happy Holidays

    It most likely will fit, the only thing i would check on is the size of the bushings, thats usually where the differences between the two suspensions is. if all youre doing is swapping tacoma suspension to a 4runner then i wouldnt worry about UCA's, the lift amount won't be large enough to necessitate them, but if youre planning more lift in the future it cant hurt to be prepared

    Caveat, rear yes if you press out the rear bushings and replace with different lower bushings... Cost is around 8 bucks to do this and around 20 minutes. I will say the rear shocks are too soft for the 4Runner though as I'm currently running them and will replace them soon.

    Not to drudge up an old thread, but I am under the impression after a couple of scant thread reads and searches that this would be about a 1" lift in front due to length of the Taco coilover, is this actually correct?

    can anyone confirm is this will actually add height to a 5th gen 4runner using Tacoma struts?
