Is the 120 Prado easier to customise in terms of extra 50mm lift? Everyone seems to warn against lifting IFS cruiser more than 35mm which worries me. Does a 50mm ifs lift still leave useful downward suspension travel in 120prado?

Different ifs on the Prado. McFerson struts on the Prado and torsion bars on the Cuiser. Unsure how the downward travel is affected on a Prado once lifted.

the 120 is quite easy to lift 50mm

you will lose a bit of down travel, but can gain som lift also from bigger tyres.

you also get decent firm springs unlike the sponges toyota put in @ the factory.

Pics of my 50mm lift springs are here:

Heaven forbid that you would actually raise the height of your 4x4.

They already rollover to quick you know, let alone actually making it taller and MORE prone to rollover.

Lifted one 75mm yesterday with Bilstien shocks, coil over spring adjustable saddles, with custom valving, and a set of Lovells springs.

The vehicle still has 60mm front down travel, rides absolutely awsome, the cv angles are excellent, and the front end now has my custom alignment settings, making for great handling, roadholding, with its 265/75/17 Cooper ST's.

The link below is the same adjustable system in my 90 series.

looks impresive! Reminds me of the adjustment on the rear shocks of my dirt bikes years ago.

Impressive - but it looks like a stray twig would tear that soft little rubber boot apart!

I have a spare one here, perhaps you would care to try damaging it with your long nails, or your teeth, will give you an hour, see what the score is then, but Im tipping it will be cv boot 1 vs Schev 0 ;-)
