If the shafts are pitted, any service is a waste of time without a pair of new shafts, main seal carriers and rod guides, shaft & main seals, and wipers. Probably need a new guide bushing for the piston in this case, too.
If the shafts are fine, the seals are probably fine as well. Change whatever you want, but they probably just need nitrogen.
Rebuilding doesn't take long, assuming you have all the parts you need. Pull them at your place, bring them to mine, we'll sort it out. All I ask is a few bucks for consumables (nitrogen, oil). If the shafts are fine, it's enough to raise the truck so the shafts are at full extension, and add nitrogen...no need to pull them off the truck.
Realistically, doing this easily and efficiently requires two vises, a wall-mounted spring compressor, an impact gun, and a nitrogen tank. Doing without those items is kind of a pain in the ass.
Yes I can help re-shim, no I don't know what shims you need, and unless it's riding stiff, or the compression side isn't already using a flutter shim, or it's rebounding too fast or packing up, there's really no need to mess with it.
Going with OME from Toytech. for my 07 Taco DC
Hello everyone, been lurking on the site for a while and after camping this last 4th of July have decided to get a lift for the truck. I was sagging real good and was bottoming out with the camping gear. After a lot of reading and searching...
Can anyone please recommend an affordable shop in the Denver area that will install a lift kit for '08 4Runner? I checked with Slee and they estimated $1400 for a 3" suspension upgrade which seems a little steep.
