ONE MILLION LANDCRUISERS IN AUSTRALIA NEED PARTS
HPP Lunds is ready to supply the LandCruiser parts you need
Toyota Australia has more LandCruiser owners than anywhere else in the world with more than one million sales in Australia and more than 10 million worldwide.
This very popular off-road series includes the Prado and dates back to 1954, making it one of the longest running one-make vehicles on sale in the country.
Its popularity has been ongoing with the 80 Series being one of the oldest off-road vehicles on sale globally after the original Land Rover Defender range.
The current generation of the 200 Series LandCruiser is now around 15 years old and the iconic 70 Series is more than 30 years old.
Such an impressive longevity especially in a ‘built to go anywhere’ vehicle means that parts must be available and easy to source to keep these workhorses on the road.
This is where HPP Lunds says it excels. The company states it has been at the forefront of parts supply for LandCruisers for many years and offers a dedicated call centre to assist owners to source the right part.
To hunt down parts HPP Lunds also offers an easy-to-use catalogue where parts are listed as they pertain to each model with the years covered from 1964 through to 2015. LandCruiser Prado models are also covered from 1996 to 2009.
Most line items in the catalogues come with notes to add clarity, for example whether the ball joint is left or right, or whether the component is for the front or rear differential.
Approximately 99 percent of HPP Lunds’ parts are directly imported from the manufacturers with stock available in the Brisbane warehouse.
Both catalogues are available in hardcopy and can be downloaded from www.hpplunds.com.au
HPP Lunds 4WD parts are also listed on AutoInfo (Oscar) with more than 28000 entries.
New parts added to the range
HPP Lunds’ range of driveline, suspension and body hardware components now includes direct-replacement air bag clock springs (aka spiral cables), diesel primer pumps and free-wheeling bubs (aka manual locking hubs).
HPP Lunds’ free-wheeling hubs are available to suit Toyota LandCruiser and are said to be ideal aftermarket replacements for factory-fitted hubs or manual locking hubs that have failed.
HPP Lunds says these manually operated hubs are a quick and easy way to switch between 4×2 and 4×4 drive modes in part-time 4WD vehicles by turning the control knob to disconnect the front wheels from the axle and differential, giving increased fuel economy and reduced drivetrain wear during normal road use when four-wheel drive is not required.
HPP Lunds’ air bag clock springs are available to suit Toyota Hilux KUN26 (both with and without VSC – Vehicle Stability Control), 100-series LandCruiser and 120-series Prado.
Clock springs are a fragile electronic component located behind the steering wheel air bag which provide a vital connection between the air bag and other electronic components on the steering wheel and the vehicle’s wiring harness and control modules.
These spiral cables are a common failure item in these vehicles, causing an air bag warning light to appear on the dashboard and an accompanying fault code to be stored in the vehicle’s diagnostic system.
HPP Lunds says all components are covered by a 12-month warranty against manufacturing faults.
