you can use your stock ones since they dont have much of a drop, ask sultan for more info, he has these!!

different shocks are recommended. because it's going to be a higher spring rate (stiffer ride) your stock shocks are going to wear out...probably within a year.

it's usually worth it just to buy the aftermarket shocks (such as the kyb agx adjustables) and that way you save on the install costs doing it all at once.

yeah, the TRD springs only give a 1" drop..so the spring rate won't be as stiff as say eibach sportlines but it will be noticeable.

yeah - I have them and the difference from stock springs is noticeable in terms of stiffness and ride comfort, however the topic of struts can best be answered by the mileage of your celi... If you have less than 50K, keep the stock struts - if it's considerably more then go with aftermarket ones (TRD, etc) Of course, if you have the cash then by all means just get new struts and springs together. If you look hard enough, you'll find a few places that sell the TRD strut/spring package for a very reasonable price.

... personally, I only have 15K so I'll replace my stocks at my convenience - probably when I finally put on the 18's
