Nope - extended warranties don’t cover wearable items (brakes, tires, shocks etc.) unless it is specifically stated.

re: extended warranty question
How many miles? The parts could be covered to a certain amount. If breaking down before manufacturer spec they could be faulty

how many speed bumps is she crossing? Were the shocks cheap? Should get 2x that many miles.

re: extended warranty question
As mentioned above, shocks are usually not considered an extended warranty covered item. The only time I was able to get warranty out of shocks was directly from the shock manufacturer on a non-oem, lifetime shock and that was a pain.

Sounds like the shocks are getting some extra work on these trips your wife takes.

Don’t bother knocking if that 4 runner a rocking

Replaced the shocks on our suburban at 51K miles under extended warranty. Wife’s car, she doesn’t ease over speed bumps or curbs.

re: extended warranty question
Tokiko shocks should not fail that quickly.

I'd request they send pictures to the manufacturer for warranty.

Shocks or struts? Struts are often covered

re: extended warranty question
Was this the factory manufacturer, ie ToyotaCare, extended warranty?

Or do you have what is called an 'after-market' type warranty?

Big difference.

I tell folks all the time that the after-market warranties are garbage and should be avoided.

I think there ToyotaCare offers 3 or four levels of extended coverage for their vehicles.

So check which type extended warranty you have and contact your local Toyota dealer.

re: extended warranty question
if you are going to buy an aftermarket make sure you buy it from a credit union. Those are as good and mfg. warranties
