Rating: (see review/s)

"I installed the KYB shocks on my 4-cyl 2000 Toyota Tacoma. I noticed a definite improvement in the smoothness of the ride. I was never happy with the harsh ride from my previous shocks, which were installed by a local muffler shop at about three times the price I paid for these. The previous shocks on the front were Gabriel, but I couldn't tell what brand was on the rear. One of the rear shocks was leaking oil." posted by: Phil on March 19, 2008

Your Toyota Tacoma is able to handle quite a load thanks to its heavy-duty shock absorber and strut assembly. The Tacoma's double wishbone front suspension, with coiled springs mounted on the wishbones, ensures a smooth ride by absorbing road vibrations and impacts. Shock absorbers, also known as dampers, steady the springs by converting the energy of their up-and-down movement into heat. Problems with your suspension system will give you an uncomfortably rough ride, with you and your passengers keenly feeling every road imperfection and bouncing up and down repeatedly after every speed bump. When that happens, restore the quality of your ride by getting a new shock absorber and strut assembly for your Toyota Tacoma.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ask APW
  • Can a Toyota Tacoma's shock absorber and strut assembly be tested for wear and tear?
    Answer: Yes. It is better to detect problems with the strut assembly early and from the safety of the garage rather than out in the street. The springs can be tested by pushing down on a corner of the Toyota Tacoma with one hand (or just three fingers). If the corner is easily pushed down by more than an inch or two, then the springs are worn out. The shocks can be tested by pressing down on one of the Tacoma's fenders (or any corner) with both hands and then releasing it. If the vehicle bounces up more than once, then the shocks are worn out.
  • What advantages can a performance aftermarket shock absorber and strut assembly give to a Toyota Tacoma?
    Answer: The Toyota Tacoma and other heavy vehicles can benefit from aftermarket performance shock absorbers since these can help them deal with carrying heavy loads over rough terrain. The right choice of aftermarket shocks give added stability and even increase fuel economy. If needed, adjustable shock absorbers can be installed to bear loads up to 30 times heavier than non-adjustable shocks can handle. The Toyota Tacoma's suspension can also be lowered, giving it more car-like drivability.
  • When should the shock absorber and strut assembly on a Toyota Tacoma be replaced?
    Answer: The right time to replace a Tacoma's shock absorber and strut assembly is at the first signs of trouble. Symptoms of a worn-out strut assembly include worn-out tires, difficulty steering, and frequent popping or clunking noises. An excessively bumpy and uncomfortable ride means trouble with the suspension springs. Bouncing up and down repeatedly after going over a speed bump is a clear sign of faulty shocks absorbers.
