    I see lots of Stock take off parts like Shocks ,A-arms and other parts.
    I was wondering if there was a sticky already made for this info.

    I see Craigs list add for 2017 front and rear shocks off a Tundra and wondering if the rear shocks woud fit my 05 2wd or if the struts will fit mine..

    pretty sure most 07+ parts won't work on anything 06 and below. though i'm sure you could make them if you were really inclined and skilled enough, but idk why you'd want to. They're different suspension and drive train setups. Generally, inter-generation parts will swap out, but once they remodel, well, they remodel.

    just pull your truck up to a newer tundra and compare the two for a quick look, otherwise you'd want to pull parts and compare side by side.

    some things to consider are the shock length and eye bolt diameter for instance. if they're the same then they'd more than likely be a direct swap, shocks are pretty simple. On the other hand, the front struts may be totally different, i.e. the top hat bolt pattern, clearances etc.

    depending on the price of the stuff on CL, you might just be able to buy new off of a site like Rockauto.com...

    There are a few new Tundras in the parking lot at work I could go take some mesurements.
    I might just look at the rear shocks. I want todo 5100's on the front at the highest setting. the front of my truck needs to come up about 3" to sit level .
    It looks level here but on flat ground it's nose down.
