    Looking to upgrade the stock black shocks on my 2010 Tundra Platinum (black shocks). A member recently posted trd pro shocks red/blue for sale in the Colorado trading post and I missed out, I started researching where to get a new set. The part numbers are ptr13-34071 (rear) and ptr13-34070 (front). When I do a search for ptr13-34070 (front) it only comes up with 2WD and they won’t fit 4x4, they don’t have coil overs on the front. I called Toyota of Dallas as they have these shocks online but only in 2x4. I was told these were for lowering...and they don’t make them for 4x4 (with the coil over on the front ones). That doesn’t make any sense, as the pics posted on Colorado trading post (page 5) have front coil overs? Anybody know how I can get my hands on the red/blue shocks for a 4x4 or what I am missing here? Dallas Toyota told me I’d have to buy PTR13-34140, which is like $2500. I’m looking to spend hundreds not thousands.

    I get ya, I’d just like a better understanding of what’s going on. The lady at Dallas Toyota made it seem like those red/blue isn’t made for 4x4, but how did another member get their hands on a 4x4 version...?

    Those are the sports shocks and I believe they're for lowering your truck. I'm guessing, technically you could get them to work on a 4x4 'cause there's not that much difference. All 2nd and 3rd gen Tundras have coil overs, both 2 and 4wd. I don't remember what 1st gens have but I think they're the same. You'd reuse your present springs and they'd sit lower on the shock body.

    Thanks, that makes sense and is what I was leaning towards. Is there any harm in reusing the coil overs for whichever front shocks I decide on? Or do you guys recommended replacing the coil overs too, truck only has 75k....

    I don't see a problem with reusing the coil springs. 75k is around the time to replace shocks but I haven't read about when to replace springs.

    For anybody else interested in going with the red/blue Bilsteins from the TRD Sport, Ptr13-34070 (front) and Ptr13-34071 (rear), WILL fit 4wd models regardless of what most websites state (2WD only). I spoke with my local dealer here, Mountain States Toyota in Denver and after some back and forth, he told me Toyota was incorrect to state that these are for 2WD and they are slow to correct these changes. All of their distributors use the same “description” provided by Toyota, hence every website stating 2WD only, but that’s incorrect. Mountain States Toyota has corrected this on their website to show these shocks do indeed fit 4WD models as well. Hope this helps somebody in the future, drove me crazy for a few days...
