200 Series Land Cruiser Build: A Legend Gets Upgraded

The Toyota Land Cruiser has been around for years and is widely regarded as one of the best off road sport utility vehicles ever made. The 200 Series Land Cruiser  was released in 2008 and offers a mix of luxury and off road capability that is tough to match. Being the Toyota experts for over 25 years, we couldn’t leave our 2020 Heritage Edition alone for very long. Building on the already successful V8 SUV platform, we upgraded suspension components including the upper and lower control arms, rear links, added a custom skid plate, and mounted 35″ BFG All-Terrain K02 tires. With these performance suspension upgrades, our 200 Series Land Cruiser is ready to crush miles no matter what terrain it encounters.



For the front end, we upgraded the shocks to KING 3.0″ diameter coilovers with finned external reservoirs and compression adjusters providing the vehicle with 2″-3″ of lift. To get the most performance out of the coilovers, we added a set of our 4130 chromoly upper control arms with urethane bushings and 1″ stainless steel uniballs. By adding these UCA’s and extended travel coilovers, we were able to pick up an additional inch of down travel. Next we added a set of our boxed lower control arms. These stout LCA’s utilize the same urethane bushings and 1″ uniballs as the UCA’s and are built to retain the factory Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (KDSS). To protect the underbody of the LC200 we added our 1/4″ aluminum skidplate/belly pan combo.

The rear end of the Land Cruiser also got a major upgrade from KING with 3.0″ diameter shocks. With finned external reservoirs and adjustable compression & dampening, these shocks are tough as nails and allow the user to fine tune the shocks to their preference. Because of their mounting location along the rocker panel, a set of bolt-on reservoir guards were added to protect the rear shock reservoirs. Next a set of our adjustable rear links were added. The set includes 4130 chromoly upper and lower links as well as a panhard bar. Not only are urethane bushings a great upgrade over the factory rubber bushings, but 7/8″ heim joints on the lower links offer a range of adjustability to the user.
