Toyota 200 Series 3800kg GVM Upgrade

West Coast Suspension is now authorised under Federal approval number 49103 (NB1 – GX only) or 49557 (MC – GXL, VX & Sahara) to supply and fit a GVM suspension upgrade for the 200 Series Land Cruiser Wagon to 3800 kilograms GVM. This enables the operator to legally carry 450 kgs over the factory stipulated GVM.

This kit has been  fully certified under RVCS (Road Vehicle Certification System) by the federal Dept. of Infrastructure and Regional Development. 

Each GVM suspension upgrade is issued with a green modification compliance plate fitted next to the OEM compliance plate, stating vehicle particulars and approval number issued as Second Stage Manufacture. The suspension modification and fixing of the green modification plate must be done prior to any other modifications and must be done prior to the vehicle being licensed.

For vehicles that have already been road registered, the process varies from state to state. The vehicle may be required to be inspected by an authorised Automotive Engineer in that state to be issued with a compliance certificate. 

Suspension kit consists of:

4 Heavy Duty Shock Absorbers1 Green Compliance Plate
4 Heavy Duty Coil Springs1 Tyre Placard
2 Category 6 Side Indicators (GX Only) 

This kit also requires Category 6 side indicators to be fitted to the vehicle before it is presented for licensing.

Please be aware that these kits must be fitted by a DOTARS approved manufacturing facility.

All relevant application and approval forms for vehicle particulars will be available from West Coast Suspension staff at time of purchase
