Re: Newbie 2.4JTDm Timing Belt & Shocks Query
when you change the belt is up to the individual, but its always a balancing act of risk vs cost. i think most people would agree that waiting till 72k is taking a bigger risk than its worth, but then again i bet the majority of owners who are not affected by forum paranoia leave it beyond that mileage and in only a very small number of cases is it ever a problem.
personally i believe regular inspection is the best method, it ensures you dont change earlier than you need to so you save money, but also dont leave it too late and risk the expense of a repair.
"revalved" shock absorbers have had the valve replaced, usually with an uprated valve (often a larger number of smaller holes). this is usually done if aftermarket uprated shocks are not available with the charactersitics you require.
