Hi all. Looking for advise on the above.
20ft Bt on back of 200 series with stock height ride.
Looking into 200kg rear coils at standard height. Also advise on good shokies to suit would be helpfull.
Just unsure on the correct WDH as the medium is upto 275 and the large 275 and over. Seems to be around where we might be.
Any advise on the above would be appreciated.
Thanks. Very Happy

[i]I have experimented around with Shocks and coils on a couple of 200 Series.

If money is not an issue, the Lovells is probably the best and opens up the door to a tow capacity increase later if you wanted to...

I personally like the 50mm lift and progressive coils of ARB, the end of the coil is lighter and softer when not loaded up. There is a Topic on upgrades to the 200 Series suspension in TIPS ON TOW VEHICLES...

The smaller WDH is the one you need, with the L shaped bars, where the super heavy duty one has trunion bars that will interfere with the a-frame. The L shaped bars, I think 800 lb (350 kg) ball weight from memory, drops the bars down below the a-frame. That is THE ONE..

Thanks Steve.
Ive had a rep from the local HR outlet email me a graph which shows which kit for which ball weight. It doesnt show the style of the bars so ill see when i go to collect.
Im having trouble uploading the graph he sent which shows the weights min and max for each kit, so ill translate;
MINI; 0-80KG
INTERMEDIATE; 80-135KG
MEDIUM; 135-275KG
HEAVY; 275-365KG
SUPER HEAVY;365-545KG
Q, Would the heavy setup be the one given the max ball weight is 350?

Regards. Gareth.

Hello again Gareth,

Always here to help..
I wrote the other answer in a rush and did not complete it properly. The Lovells were first place in our tests on ride quality and because of the GVM increase on the 200 Series.

My own personal second place and the one I chose before Lovells was the ARB Progressive Coils with a 50mm lift. In addition to the ARB progressive coils, my Shock choice was the ARB Nitrochargers. They have always exceeded their Warranty on Landcruisers IMO...

Now on the WDH, you want the one called "HEAVY", with the L shaped drop bars to clear the aframe.

Also I suggest you go through the Category
TOP TEN THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE DELIVERY... In the Owners Section..

Kind regards, and safe travels, but be prepared before you go...
Steven Gibbs, Director

This one:

http://www.haymanreese.com.au/products/standard-series-18906

You also have to select the correct drop hitch. Go to page 70 in the catalogue here:

http://www.haymanreese.com.au/downloads/Hayman%20Reese%20Catalogue%20V2018-9_LR.pdf

You will see the choice of drop hitches.

Part # 50152 is the 95mm drop and Part # 50153 is the 160mm drop.

The correct choice will depend on what aftermarket suspension you choose because that will lift the hitch point higher off the ground (and it's high to start with on a 200 Series). It's not straightforward because one choice (suspension) will affect the other choice (drop hitch).
