    Default Are you familiar with these shocks?

    I received two new shocks, in the box with my recent vehicle purchase. Are they any good? Also, don't shoot me, im not a techie, do shocks have a shelf life? These were manufactured in 2013, but never used.

    TJM is a pretty well known brand.

    They are good shocks

    Normally without a shelf life. Without being used they can last very long.

    I've tried to read up on it, they fit most off roads ... but it seems they are the choice for Toyota's and Tritons in Oz. I have 2 fitted on the back of my triton currently, so was contemplating fitting these 2 on the front, but then noticed I have 2 Ironman shocks in the front, which are still working 100

    I would be extremely surprised if your vehicle uses the same shocks front and rear...

    Best find out exactly what they are for, as there are probably at least two stifnesses available for the rear too, to suit different springs...

    Thanks all. I will see if they will work on the front, if so then I'll take out the ironman shocks.

    Good stuff, as for shelf life, no time limit. Once you fit them the shelf life ends and then it starts wearing out
