I've got a typical 4Runner, it sags in the rear when loaded up, it currently has the monroe shocks (older gas riders???) that were in it when I brought it. Just wondering if anyone has any experience with shocks and or Coils that do or don't go well in the back of the 4Runner.

HI I fitted Ranchos to my old 4 Runner which was fine but the best thing I did was add the polli air bags they worked a treat also helped to level out the 4x4 when towing a caravan

Got full OME springs/shocks in our 4 Runner plus polyair bags for when we're away and its loaded up.Rear springs are OME 900 which give a 40mm lift over std,once fully loaded it did drop back to about std height but with the airbags it holds the extra 40mm well.Less body roll with airbags as well.
As I wanted more height Ive also installed 30mm coil spacers to the rear and ball joint spacers to the front(also with OME torsion bars),giving 3 inch lift overall.

Did you find that raising the rear 70mm overall ( spacers + coils) shifted the diff out to one side? Have you fitted an adjustable Panhard rod or is the 4Runners adjustable?

I found with 70mm,the diff is about 10mm out.I would like to go to a four inch lift but would need an adjustable panhard rod plus maybe brake line extenders.One other mod that Ive seen done is a drop down bracket for the panhard rod,saves buying an adjustable one.

Mate my surf has still got the origional Yota shocks that are 7 years old. They are still working good!!! The surf is identical to the 4runner rear suspension.
I replaced the crappy springs with some no branded after market heavy duty ones for about $200. Then I brought some firestone poly air bags from Yanky land for less than A$200 delivered and fitted them myself.
The beast is fantastic now, even with a full roof rack, 100L Diesel, 50L water and about 5 cartons of beer :-) It still has it's bum sticking up in the air if I pump the bags up to 35psi (max recommended pressure). Handles great at about 15psi when unloaded.
They havn' seemed to have limited my articulation and there is heaps less body roll.

After you have consumed the 5 cartons of beer I am sure you will get plenty of body roll , LOL
