    For Sale Bellingham, WA: 70 series 1987-96 Prado Coil Lift Springs

    These were fitted to my 94 KZJ78 Land Cruiser Prado when it arrived from Japan. I desired taller springs, so I purchased Dobinson's tallest springs ($490 + shipping) and installed them. Turns out they are the same height and they feel the same, so my effort was a waste of time. Live and learn...
