Guides Title TRD Struts, Cartridges and Shocks
Name image Crzy Joe
TRD offers a wide range of strut cartridges (think of them as shock inserts for the struts on McPhearson-type suspensions) and shock absorbers for Toyota applications. In addition, TRD has/had rebuildable strut housings to replace the stock non-rebuildable struts where needed (cartrigdes abailable for them separately). Low pressure shocks and cartridges are ideal for street and for stock class Autocross; high pressure is best for prepared classes in Autocross and for road racing. TRD also offer rally struts for the AllTrac, with adjustable ride height.
For best results, low pressure shocks/struts/cartridges should be matched with progressive rate or 'race' springs. High pressure shocks/struts/cartridges should be used with 'race' springs.
