Toyota Land Cruiser
In January 1998, the 100 series Land Cruiser was introduced to replace the 8-year-old 80 series. The 100 series was previewed in October 1997 as the “Grand Cruiser” at the 32nd Tokyo Motor Show. Development began in 1991 under program code 404T, with the final design being frozen in mid-1994.
The IFS 100-series gained a reputation for front suspension failures in operating conditions where the front suspension was prone to hitting the bump stops. Several companies produce strengthened lower wishbones to prevent cracks from developing.
