Can you adjust the rear suspension height in a 2006 Toyota Pardo?

Asked by Paul

I recently bought an old 2006 Toyota Prado TX Limited. It had 250,000km on it and in a week with it, I have put another 1200km on it. The car drives great, handles well, basically everything about it is okay. The only issue I am having with it is the height of the rear suspension. It’s simply too high. I have looked for the button that is supposed to adjust the rear height but this particular vehicle does not have a button in any of the positions that the car’s manual suggests. Can someone help identify where the rear suspension height adjustment button can be found?

In Australia, this model Prado was available in GX, GXL, VX and Grande trim levels. There was a TX model for some markets globally, but if your car is a private import from elsewhere, then it’s an absolute crap-shoot trying to decipher its options and standard fitments.

With that in mind, if it is either a GX, GXL or VX, then it won’t have a button to control the rear ride height, because the only Australian-delivered 120-Series Prado to have this feature was the Grande. The reason your vehicle sits too high probably has more to do with a previous owner fitting heavier rear springs to account for fully-loaded touring or towing a decent sized trailer.
