Question about Toyota Land Cruiser

1 Answer

I am going to live my Toyoya Land Cruiser Prado in my garage for 9 months and wish to put it on trestles. I have 4 3 ton trestles and 1 21/2 ton hydraulic jack on 4 wheels. My idea is to lift the car at the back putting the jack under the differential and then lower it on trestles under the rear axles. This done lift the car at front right, lower it on one trestle and finally lift the car at front left and lower it on the last trestle. Is this O.K. or I risk damaging the car?

Hello. I think a better procedure would be to lift the front first and then lift the rear, that way there is less stress on the vehicle. When you lift the rear be sure the jack has room to move as the vehicle goes up. Please use all safety precautions.

You may have a frozen cable to the actuator, or the actuator itself may be bad. Check also for vacuum leak(s). Peace. God bless.

Need tire size for 1995 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado

Big tires:

1. Hard time for your drive train (clutch, cv joint, tranny, diff gears) , power steering, brakes
2. Slow acceleration
3. possible fender damage
4. turning radius problem
5. increase body roll and instability
1. good ground clearance
2. softer ride
3. Enhanced off-road ability

tires your planning to buy can fit into your existing rims.
My personal opinion is for you to go for the bigger tires!
