If you’re looking for a superior Toyota Prado lift kit that won’t compromise your ride quality, you won’t find better than Supashock.
The Supashock 4x4 dampers that come with the lift kit operate unlike any other product on the market, and feature world leading technology that provides you with off-road capability for your Toyota Prado that is not available anywhere else.
The Supashock lift kits are designed, manufactured, assembled and tested in Australia, for Australian conditions, so you can drive your 4x4 through the toughest terrain you can throw at it.
The 4x4 dampers used in our 4x4 Lift Kit are derived from the same technologies Supashock have developed for high-performance applications such as V8 Supercars, the factory fitted suspension of the legendary HSV GTS-R W1, the suspension upgrade on the HSV Colorado SportsCat, and active and passive suspension systems for military vehicles.
The dampers in the Supashock lift kit are specifically tuned for individual vehicle models by experienced chassis tuning engineers to provide superior comfort and performance in all driving conditions. The proprietary piston and valve design inside the Supashock damper has been developed to offer maximum traction in both on-road and off-road applications.
Applying this technology to the Supashock 4x4 range provides Supashock equipped vehicles with unrivalled handling and braking performance, without compromising ride quality. Your 4x4 will be able to withstand anything with Supashock.
WHY SUPASHOCK 4X4 SUSPENSION FOR MY TOYOTA PRADO?
A key feature of each 4x4 damper is Supashock’s patented Shell Reservoir System, which consists of a floating piston that separates the pressurised gas and oil inside the shock absorber. The large-diameter main shaft allows a high oil volume without the need for an external reservoir, providing the performance of a monotube damper with the packaging benefits of a twin-tube design.
This large oil volume combined with a billet aluminium damper piston makes the Supashock 4x4 dampers extremely thermally efficient for your 4x4. This results in consistent performance for your 4x4 during extended use on rough roads or when tackling rough corrugations. This lowers the likelihood of shock fade meaning that your Toyota Prado maintains handling response and therefore safety, no matter where you drive your 4x4 – all thanks to Supashock.

Tips for installing your Toyota Prado Lift Kit
However, if you want to install it yourself, we strongly recommend you take your 4x4 to a professional workshop thereafter to get it checked over, for safety’s sake.
Remember the following:
- You will raise your vehicle by 2” or approximately 50mm
- There are limitations
- Raising your vehicle over 2” requires supporting modifications so that your vehicle doesn’t lose traction when offroad due to lack of droop
- Additional problems that could occur if you raise your vehicle too high include;
- Poor wheel alignment
- Unevenly worn tyres
- Poor on-road handling
- Greater chance of driveline damage
- Stretching of brake lines and electrical components
- Once you raise your vehicle, there’s a significant chance it will handle differently.
