I’ve got a 1994 Toyoace with a 2.8 diesel. It on a WOF not a COF. It is leaf spring in the front and the rear. What I want to do is install 80 series Landcruiser diffs and a Landcruiser transfer case under the truck, leaving the existing suspension where it is and just making new leaf spring mounts on the diffs. Would I have any issues during the cert process with regards to the trucks payload?
More details would be required to give an exact answer, as it will depend on the GVM of your vehicle as well as the weight differences between the components you're removing and the components you're adding.
Essentially though, you'd need to compare the GVM of your vehicle, with the Landcruiser. If the GVM of the Landcruiser is the same or above, there shouldn't be an issue. But, the carrying capacity may reduce, as the components you're adding will take away some of the vehicle's capacity.
The certification process does not assign a new GVM to the vehicle.
If you need more help on this, email through some details of your vehicle (rego etc) to firstname.lastname@example.org
