Q:do you need a spring compresser or related item to replace these struts and is it relitively easy to do on an 05 tacoma 4wd ? thanks
A:Yes, this KYB Gas Shock(Part No. 341340) fits your 2005 Toyota Tacoma. Instructions: 1. Raise the vehicle with the floor jack. 2. Remove the wheel and tire with the lug wrench by turning the nuts in a counterclockwise direction. Set the wheel and tire aside. 3. Loosen the lower shock absorber mount nut by turning it in a counterclockwise direction, but do not completely remove it. 4. Remove the top mount bolts, or twin mounting screws, or single mount post nut by turning them all counterclockwise. The shock's eyelet will either go through the mount bolt, or be mounted to a plate that fastens to the underside of the vehicle. Front shocks will typically mount into large holes at a vertical angle, protected by bushings. 5. Remove the lower mount nut by turning it out completely, and the shock will slide off of the mount bolt and out of the vehicle. 6. Replace the shock absorber and position it onto the upper mount bolt. Secure it to the top mount, but do not tighten the nuts or bolts completely. 7. Line up the lower mount bolt, then cut the keeper strap on the new shock. Press the lower eyelet onto the mount bolt as the shock decompresses, then tighten the lower mount nut in a clockwise direction. 8. Tighten the upper mount nuts completely. 9. Replace the wheel and tighten the lug nuts clockwise, in an alternating pattern. 10. Lower the vehicle from the floor jack. Tools You'll Need: Socket set, Floor jack, Lug wrench, Screwdrivers.

A:Yes, this part KYB Gas Shock, Part No. 341340 fits your 2003 Toyota 4Runner Sports. This part is for the Front side of the vehicle.
Q:Are shocks and struts two separate things, or are they essentially two parts of the same piece? Thanks!
A:Shocks and struts do the same thing control the bounce of the car. Struts are on the front of some cars. They well incorporate the spring as part of them. A shock well be in the middle of the front spring clearly seen as a separate part.
