Outboard Shock Relocation (OSR)
Introducing the best shock relocation kit on the market for 3rd gen 4Runners. More models coming soon!

The problem: If you've ever worked on the rear suspension of a 3rd gen 4Runner, you know how frustrating it can be to remove/install the shocks. Unlike newer 4Runners, the 3rd gen’s rear shock mounts are tucked way up inside the frame. This limits the size of the shock you can fit. It also means that the shocks are mounted at an angle, which reduces shock efficiency and performance. Not ideal!
The solution: The OSR moves the shocks where they should've been in the first place, to the outside of the frame. It also comes with lower shock tabs that replace the stock lower mount. This allows for longer shocks, makes install and removal a breeze, and greatly improves the efficiency and performance of the shock! The cherry on top is that you'll be saving money on your shock purchase, since universal smoothbody shocks tend to be much cheaper than "factory replacement" shocks.
The OSR improves on other outboard kits in more ways than one. In addition to the higher strength DOM steel, the FGP kit utilizes frame plates to add load bearing strength at the mounting points, as well as radius’d upper mounts to give more weld surface and strength than your typical outboard hoop. This kit was built to outperform the competition, plain and simple.
The FGP OSR is designed to be compatible with any spring and smoothbody 2.0 shock with a 10” or 12" stroke. If you plan on keeping factory geometry, go with the 10s! 12in shocks require limit straps to prevent bind in the driveline with stock geometry. If you plan on getting our upcoming 3-link kit, or already have a long travel rear setup, go with the 12s!
