Toyota Prado Lift Kit (Monotube) – Profender 2″ Prado Lift Kit
Profender Premium Suspension are a world class manufacturer of all suspension products, and made a name for themselves with arguably the best off-road racing shocks in the world. That’s many of the biggest brands in the world go to them for manufacturing – think Superior Engineering, TJM, Lovells, Tough Dog and so many more!
We figured, why pay for everyone else’s advertising and branding costs, when you can just go straight to the manufacturer and have them supply their top shelf products direct.
What 150 Series Prado Lift Kit should I pick?
There are plenty of things to consider when it comes to suspension upgrades.
When choosing a Toyota Prado Lift Kit, it’s important to consider what you are using your vehicle for, and what sort of action your Prado will see. Are you purely after some extra clearance and don’t mind too much about the ride? Or do you require added performance and a comfortable on-road experience? Do you need the whole hog, with ability the to dampen and adjust the responsiveness on your shock depending on your vehicle use at the time?
The crew at TWD 4×4 HQ have put together three sets of Toyota Prado Lift Kits for customers:
- Heavy Duty (Twin Tube) Shock – entry level heavy duty shock from Profender, which is defined by two separated fluid areas within the working cylinder. The basic damping mechanism within twin tube shocks are sufficient for standard on-road conditions and light off road use. Ideal for Prado 150 owners who are chasing a Toyota Prado Lift Kit simply for added height/clearance, and a comfortable ride with minimal off-road performance.
- Monotube 2.0 Shock – the Profender Monotube gas shock is defined by single cylinder mechanism, with a high pressure nitrogen gas that never interacts with the hydraulic fluid. This design eliminates any aeration or foaming, optimising for the best performance in any given driving conditions as needed. It provides increased responsiveness, more vehicle stability, less body roll and greater longevity of your shocks. This is an absolutely world class shock built from the Profender Racing Shock team (check the sort of stuff being developed by Profender Shocks here). Our most popular Toyota Prado Lift Kit is the stage 2 Prado Lift Kit with Monotube shocks.
- Remote Res (8-Step Adjustable) – Built on the Monotube 2.0 shock with flexibility when it comes to preferred responsiveness of your shock. This is controlled with the adjustable knobs to dampen or tighten your ride (front and rear). Perfect for variable-use city driving, high speed, beach, off-road and towing. If you’re towing caravans and heavy loads, consider adding airbags to your quote.
*** All Profender 150 Series Prado Lift Kits will require a Sway Bar Relocation Kit. A Diff Drop is strongly recommended, however not an absolute requirement. Profender UCA is always recommended to restore your front end geometry back to intended factory angles ***
Suitable for: 150 Series Prado Lift Kit
How much weight have you added (or are adding) to your Prado?
Another important consideration is what sort of weight you’re subjecting your suspension to. We typically like to differentiate between front end weight (bull bar, winch, aftermarket bonnet etc.) and rear end weight (tools, drawers, rooftop tent etc.).
You don’t want to subject your suspension setup to more weight than the springs are rated to, yet at the same time, it’s still important to have a comfortable ride – especially given you’re probably using your Prado as a daily. When requesting a quote, use the drop down options to estimate the weight you’ll have on each end, and the TWD 4×4 team can provide you some advice on what kit and coil rating will best suit your vehicle from there.
