    Susension Upgrades

    News from Toyota last night...
    Can no longer fit upgraded suspension that changes/upgrades the GVM to the new GUN#,TGN# Hilux and the new VDJ# Land Cruiser models.
    Any changes made will require a LVVTA Cert and also will void any vehicle warranty.

    Basically what its load carrying capabilities/ratings is.
    Most suspension upgrades increase the Load carrying capacity. With all the electronics on board now, any changes throw that all out of the window they reckon. Becomes a ADR compliance issue

    So is Toyota going to start producing their crap current series pieces of shit utes with half decent suspension so that end users don't feel the need to "upgrade" them to do the job they used to be able to do stock?

    Do they want to follow Holden on the path to oblivion ffs !
    The factory suspension is ok for running around town but not when you start to carry loads and do a lot of off road stuff.
    Or maybe youre not supposed to use a hilux off road any more and you got to buy a landcruiser!
    The electronics in these new trucks dont seem to like water much at all either.
