Alphard adventure spec?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, below is my 2005 Alphard 3.0 V6. Its brilliant in every way. 


Except the HKS coil over suspension is rock hard and the tyres are like elastic bands so going over a penny I could tell you its year of manufacture!


What I'd really like to do is lift it on softer springs and change the wheels and tyres for 17s with a more aggressive off road tyre, maybe a roof rack. This would suit our life style better as were frequently found at some random lake falling off a paddle board most weekends!


The thing is I have no idea where or who does these things for an Alphard, or if they even exist!


Is there anyone who can help?

Hi Phil

yes this stuff will be available but you just need to get the part numbers and you can either buy from Toyota or aftermarket, The part numbers you can use to cross reference. It's important you get the right part number and then you will certainly find bits quite easily.

The wheels you can get on ebay, used ones. Even scabby ones you can pick up cheap and get them powder coated.

On another note, you may have wheel spacers on those wheels so if you put origional wheels on then I suggest making sure the spacers are removed.


You should be able to sell those wheels very easily and old suspension which should pay for the replacement parts as HKS is very popular and those wheels do look cool, albeit uncomfortable lol
