Hey , I just got a set of front and rear springs from a 4wd and am going to put them on 2wd. I also got the stock rear shocks off the 4wd. Does anybody who knows about this know if i'm going to have to move any cables or lines ( brake , fuel??) and what do you think about the 4wd rear shocks any reason to take mine off they are in good condition??
I heard of many doing this...I can't recall any mention of any problems. All the cables are the same 2wd or 4wd. If you check the specs between the two their is not much of a height or clearance difference. So I would use your shocks until. they fail.

you will have no issues at all besides having to loosen a few rusted bolts.
geometry of the 4x2 is the same as the 4x4. toyota put softer springs on the front because the 4x2 is about 300lbs lighter in the front than the 4x4. they also made the rear softer because they figured people with the 4x2 are just going to be mall crawling.
make sure you use the 4x4 springs in the rear too because they arent the same as the 4x2, they are stiffer.
