PostSubject: What shocks for a 1994 3.0 4wd?   Tue May 22, 2018 5:40 pm

Hey guys!
I'm just wondering if anybody knows what shocks fit the FRONT of a 1994 3.0 diesel 4wd. I think it's a KZH106? Auto transmission.
I've been calling around but no shops can help me, and want me to pull one out so they can match it to something. The problem is, I don't have time to do that
and need to do the work in one day. I've tried giving them the codes from toyota DIY.com. No auto supply stores have a listing for the model.

Has anybody changed the front shocks and had this problem before?

Thanks!

Chris

How much research have you done to obtain the exact Toyota part number for this?

Have you talked with a Toyota dealer?

I have the part number, from toyota-diy. Nobody is accepting the part number on their system for aftermarket shocks, and toyota dont want to know about it. Any help from anyone? There must be an equivalent shock for another vehicle that fits.

I'm in Australia by the way. Toyota have no information on their system and I've been told they only can get parts for local models.

Maybe it would help if you told us the part number?

How did you manage to look it up without the exact model number of your van?
You'll need to be finding that, it should be in the van somewhere possibly on a plate under the passenger seat near the door opening.

The model is as follows: 1994 TOYOTA HIACE (KZH106W-MRPGT)

48511-29715 マーク 48511-26212 - non tems shock
48511-29725 マーク 48511-26222 - tems shock

Those numbers taken straight from toyota DIY.com.

I used the VIN number so it's correct.

The correct part number is there. Both the TEMS and standard. My van has a TEMS button on the dash, but pressing it does nothing and it doesn't light up. Assuming non-TEMS shocks will work fine and bolt up.

I've tried toyota parts but they don't want to know about it and nobody was helpful - flat out told me they don't keep records for the car. Two suspension places didn't have a listing for the car, although for some reason everyone has the KZH100 series (2wd) shocks available (aftermarket)

Anyone seen the shock out before and know what else would fit? my front left has collapsed and I really need to fix this.

Thanks heaps!

This is another site which has your model:
jp-carparts.com/toyota/figlist.php?maker=toyota&type=711140&cartype=143

Shocks here
jp-carparts.com/toyota/partlist.php?maker=toyota&type=711140&cartype=143&fig=4803

48511-29715 or 48511-29725 RH
48511-29715 or 48511-29725 LH

You can enquire with jp-carparts and ask them:
jp-carparts.com/oem/index.php?gid=1&maker=TOYOTA&part_number=48511-29715

Only $45 each so I'd try them first, not sure which country you live in but they may ship.

PostSubject: The correct shocks for the 4WD    Mon Dec 24, 2018 12:46 am

Hi Chris, Late reply but this will help anyone reading this.
I have a 1995 4WD KZH106W. The Monroe shocks that fit are:
Front D5473 (Isuzu Bighorn front 92+)
Rear D4435 (Toyota Landcruiser front 84-89)

If your van is the standard ride height they'll fit. Btw: even the digital Monroe catalogue here in NZ had the wrong spec. My shock installer had to refer to old physical manuals with measurements.

I can't recommend them highly enough. Transformed the ride and the way the van reacts to speed-bumps and hitting driveways at an angle at low speeds. No more diagonal catapult effect. It's like the whole road has been topped with that firm rubber from kids playgrounds. I still have all the instant road feel but through a controlled cushion. It's almost spooky.

Interesting.

I wonder what shocks would fit the 2WD, the ride could use some modernisation.
What physical measurements did he need - just the fully in and fully out lengths and the hole sizes?

Sorry not sure which specific measurements the charts have. I presume all those measurements are applicable but the important ones I've seem on other charts are the type & size of mounting at each end and the static/resting length. That length must be important with of the way the Monroe are variably valved.
Christmas morning here. Merry Xmas.

I've wound the torsion bars down on mine and fitted VW T4 gas filled shocks, pretty similar in design, I had to cut down the centre spacer to be flush with the shock eye and it fitted into the Hiace hub fine, then added some cut down poly bushes and job done

Sometimes these part number searches drive me crazy. I'm finding a Toyota part number of 48511-29675. When I pop it into ToyoDIY it tells me it will fit all Hiaces from 1989 to 2004.

But when I search by model I get a different number. 48511-29725.

I've had good luck the first way and 48511-29675 corresponds to KYB 444104.

For 26 I think I might be buying a set of these...

I need new shocks for my 1991 3L selectable 4WD has been lifted by 3". Sorry for the naive question but does that affect what shocks I need? And any suggestions for upgrading the shocks or improving the suspension - going over bumps like sleeping policemen really jars the old girl and I have to go really slow.

The lift will affect shock selection, Hiace4wd could probably advise.
