My 2008 Basic is in need of new struts and shocks. I would like to get something a little stiffer as I tow and carry heavy loads with it. Im not looking for inflatable shocks/bags or anything like that, I just want to bolt on and go. Basic parts

Ive heard about using the springs for the 3rd seat model, is this a bolt on without major fitting issues?

What have you used with success?

Thank you

The sachs are said to be a firmer and handle more like the Sport version
More Information for SACHS 314863
Then of course you can get the OE sport shock/strut.

I would go with an airbag before getting 3rd row springs for the rear. The 3rd road springs are barely stiffer. And they sag out just as easily as the non. I have airbags in my truck and plan on adding them to our rav. You really do not ever have to mess with them. Just inflate and leave. The air volume is also very small. A simple hand bike pump can fill it.
