    Hey PPers, just to let ya all know my outcome, much to most of your disgust I ended up ordered 4x new Toyota shockies from Amayama landed in Perth for $2100 (que outrage from TEMS haters).

    thanks AMTS/Piggy for the advice in this and the other thread.

    hmm didn't take note of where the switch was, but would say 'comfort' as thats what it stays on most of the time.
    the difference wasn't notable, that said i didn't pay much attention to equal force other than I squeezed, and then pulled it out. whats a brand new TEMS shock feel like?

    Most likely won't be equal force as the valving is usually different. You also need to be aware what comfort setting the TEMS shocks were in before you pulled them out.

    Ironically thats what Pedders said, then tried to sell me some general shocks for stupid money...
    Ive just done 10k of a mix of highway and corrugations and the wagon is as comfortable as it was when I brought it (she's leaning over when cornering, but thats for another thread), and as far as I can tell the shocks are working as they should so dont really want to replace if its not needed.
    The first 250k was pretty much town driving haha

    At 260 kms, remove and file them in the bin. They will be stuffed. mine flogged out at 100,000.

    Testing TEMS shockie/strut

    Hey all,

    Recently had one of the front TEMS shockies out getting the lower bush replaced, and was unsure what is normal with them. when they are out of the car should i be able to push them in and pull them out with equal force?

    I can move them in/out with a medium amount of force leading me to think they still have a bit of life left in them, is this correct?

    FYI they are the original units (all 4 of the TEMS, 260k km), no oil leakage and no noticeable suspension bounce when you push the front down.

    Cheers in advance.
