The 2016 onwards 79 series Landcruiser has had numerous changes to accommodate improvements required to increase the ANCAP rating.
Among these changes, the new model has different radius arms and different mounting positions. We believe this is a change across all models.
If this is the case, our TRC1016 kits will not fit this model due the change in mounting points.
We are working on a solution for this model, but currently, TRC1016 kits will not work with this vehicle.
SuperPro has developed, what is arguably, the most sophisticated, castor increase, high articulation and perfectly weighted replacement Radius arms for the 4WD market.

SuperPro acknowledge spacer lifts have an ugly past. Typically they have not been properly engineered or tested by the manufacturers/importer. We have also seen manufacturers make these kits to lift vehicles beyond a safe or legal lift. SuperPro has done the engineering work to get these kits right! We have incorporated each vehicles suspension geometry into the design of every kit including consideration of the solid height to ensure the shock absorber does not bottom out before it strikes the bump stop. The lift height of each kit is unique and the associated hardware is designed and engineered to be safe and legal. No other spacer lifts on the market achieve what SuperPro has.

SuperPros vertical pivoting bushes provide a perfect example of how replacing or upgrading a standard rubber component with a polyurethane equivalent can provide a series of significant benefits.
Especially those found in modern-design suspension systems and specifically, the front control arms.
The VPB design means that all articulation of the suspension is achieved by the flexing of the rubber bush, which inevitably causes distortion, especially under high lateral loads as the rubber tries hard not to tear itself apart. This results in cornering forces and the condition of the road surface moving the front wheels without any driver input and consequently, a momentary misalignment of steering geometry. This can cause vague steering, increased torque-steer and uneven tyre wear.
To overcome these issues, SuperPro began developing a VPB replacement as long ago as 1994 for the Ford Escort Mk3. However, it was not just a case of copying the original rubber components in polyurethane, as this would only replicate many of the issues. Therefore, something more innovative would be required to ensure the control arm would articulate freely, last longer and not increase NVH. The result was a sophisticated yet simple solution.
Each SuperPro VPB is an assembly of four components: a steel encased outer bush that presses into the control arm; a steel tube that fits tightly into the centre of the bush, leaving a chamfered gap at each end to allow movement; and two polyurethane cones that fit neatly over the ends of the extended inner tube. This unique assembly allows the control arm to pivot in the vertical plane with minimal resistance, whist retain positive location in the horizontal plane.
This ensures that all steering loads and suspension movements are directed to the wheels. The positively located joint means the suspension geometry remains consistent and consequently, this provides excellent feedback and feel through the steering, reduced torquesteer and even tyre wear. And, because a SuperPro equipped arm will pivot freely without the material needing to flex to achieve movement - plus, with the long-lasting properties of SuperPros unique blend of polyurethane - a high level of performance can sustained for most of the vehicles life.
SuperPros vertical pivoting bushes provide a perfect example of how replacing or upgrading - a standard rubber component with a polyurethane equivalent can provide a series of significant benefits, especially those found in modern-design suspension systems and specifically, the front control arms.
The increase in manufacturers using sub-frame assemblies where the undercarriage, engine and transmission units are fitted from underneath the car, has led to a change in design of the front control arm bushes, which has in turn uncovered issues with the performance and longevity of the standard-fit rubber bushes. Consequently, most workshops are likely to be familiar with the ever-increasing need to replace front control arms as a result of excessive wear and the failings of the rubber components.
Whereas the traditional mounting of both control arm joints was by using a bolt or pin located in a horizontal plane - in an attempt to reduce production-line assembly times - recent designs have seen the use of vertical pivoting bushing (VPB). This allows the bolt or pin in one of the joints to be located in a vertical position, whilst the other often remains horizontal. The shape of the arm and the way in which a VPB functions has led to a significant change in the design of rubber bushes for this purpose, with manufacturers introducing segmented or directional shapes and introducing voids to allow more movement and reduce NVH (noise, vibration and harshness).
SuperPro pushes the boundaries of what is possible!
SuperPro is pleased to announce the release of the most technologically advanced Differential Bushings ever produced. The Ford Diff Bush has been a problem part since inception and the associated Ford 'Diff Clunk' an audible issue for Falcon, Fairlane and Territory owners alike, SuperPro has now solved this issue!
The Ford SuperPro Polyelast Hybrid Differential support bushings are the culmination of a year of Research, Development and rigorous testing that have exceeded all expectations in both durability rig tests and in-car trials. In rig testing the bushings have been subjected to almost twice the peak loads experienced by these bushing in the vehicle for 200000 cycles and at the conclusion of the test have exhibited no signs of degradation or wear. In the test vehicles the results have proven that these bushings perform better than even the highest expectations, absolutely silent!
Developing the right material was only part of the solution; some innovative thinking was required to overcome all the issues.This gave rise to Polyelast Hybrid. This technology uses the advanced Polyelast material in combination with SuperPro Polyurethane. Polyelast offers a high degree of isolation and the SuperPro Polyurethane acts as a progressive stopper. This provides progressive isolation and protection of the Polyelast, resulting in outstanding durability.
Insulating the Polyurethane and Polyelast material from the heat transfer was achieved by utilising a lightweight Aluminium sleeve with a composite thermal protection layer was critical in solving the durability issues.
At last there is a solution that incorporates all the best properties of the SuperPro and the original equipment bushing, rolls it into one bush that solves everything and will do so, forever!
Available Now for the following vehicle models:

With a replacement for OE part # 92036511 on the following vehicles:
A - SuperPro Bushings
B - Heavy duty link designed for less side load on bushing
C - Heavy duty link for sports suspension applications
SuperPro has developed and is continually expanding its range of Caster Correction Bushes. Field reports and tests determined that caster correction was needed on many front wheel drive cars. To correct the “pull to one side” steering problem, the following options were developed:
To improve control, use the original manufacture settings.
To counteract a slight pull to the passenger side, we provide an increase of caster to the passenger side and standard setting of caster on the drivers side.
To counteract a strong pull to the passengers side, we provide an increase of caster to the passenger side and a decrease of caster to the drivers side.
To enhance performance, we provide both sides with increased positive caster.
- THESE OPTIONS ARE BASED ON BOTH LEFT HAND DRIVE & RIGHT HAND DRIVE VEHICLES. AN EXAMPLE CAN BE SEEN BELOW.
Many vehicle manufacturers use rubber-mounting systems for their steering rack and pinions. There are many reasons for this, however the main include reduction in road shock and transfer of road noise, while providing some tolerance for misalignment of location mounts.
SuperPro have produced a number of cost effective rack mounts to overcome this situation and to provide positive location of the rack with no deterioration of the mounting material. Polyurethane is not effected by mineral oils, ultra-violet light, acids and most chemicals. Replacement of rack mounts with polyurethane ensures that all steering movements will be communicated to the steering road wheels without loss of motion or transfer of road shock and noise, vibration and harshness (NVH).
As the vehicles age, leakage of lubricating oils and the effect of ultraviolet light cause the original mounts to degrade. The end results of this is movement of the rack in its mounting location causing the vehicle to wander, introducing instability and change in the rolling toe. While these are obviously critical problems, replacement mountings are traditionally expensive or no longer exist in original equipment catalogues.
