Toyota Landcriser Prado 2000 model Sign In

Hello hope you are all well, i just need a simple solution on my Landcruiser Prado 2000 model as you must have noticed being on tarmac and speeding from 140kms the car wobbles alot and it is very risky to actually keep stepping on the gas paddle is there any solution to make the car stable on road and off road?

for example i thought may be i need to keep stiff shocks and lower the car but i am not that much of an expert in such cars can you please help me out.

Regards
Asger

Might want to swing into your mechanic and have them inspect the front end for loose or worn parts to start with.

Hi well everything is new on the front and rear parts and as well as alignment and tyre balance is fine the car is smooth but after 140kms you can actually feel the drive is getting more loose this can cause the car to over turn by taking a slight wrong turn i really dont know may be it is high so i was thinking to change parts but i have no idea what to start with

Did you recently have the suspension and steering components inspected? Even though they are new, there could be other problems.

Hi i checked everything the car is fine from all ends the only thing is if i park next to a land cruiser 100 series VX the prado looks higher on the suspensions the cruiser is shorter i was thinking of getting the suspension changed to the african spec and a shorter one but i wonder what else i need to change beside just the suspension.

If there are modification to alter the ride height or suspension profile of your vehicle, the handling is going to be different.

Really don't know what African specifications are, so you really need to talk to a shop or individual that specializes in suspension and steering modifications to determine what exactly is going on.

Quote from top post "">is there any solution to make the car stable on road and off road?<<"

140kms = ~87mph for off road that's pretty wild totally depending on surface for either on or off road. For the most part I think you need to pick one or the other and probably won't find a modification that does both well at speeds like that. Perhaps you didn't mean those speeds off road.

Just tires alone that are more capable for off road use wouldn't like higher speed on road use so I think you need to pick one or the other,
