Default Suspension kit (Fj cruiser & LC prado 120)

Hello
First time posting.
I want to know is the fj cruiser and the LC prado 120 share the same and exactly suspension system because i'm searching for a Gas, and automatic transmission 3 door LC prado 120 and if I buy it I will like to put on it a 3 inch suspension lift kit.
Here in Panama Republic of Panama we don't get the V6 LC prado 120, we get:
3 doors:
Diesel Engine with manual transmission.
There are only a few gas with automatic transmission but they have a 4 cylinder, I don't know what engine is.

5 doors:
Turbo Diesel Engine with manual or automatic transmission
Gas engine, I think they only have it in automatic.

Thanks in advance.

Yes the FJC, Prado 120 and 4th Gen 4Runner all share the same suspension. The OME suspension used on the FJC and 4Runner in the US is actually the OME suspension designed originally for the Prado 120.

So you can reuse a FJC suspension kit in a Prado. However keep in mind that the rear of the Prado is a bit heavier than either FJC or 4Runner so you need to be careful when choosign the rear suspension. OME kits are fine for the Prado (as they were designed for it), but some other options you might want to look at slightly firmer rear coils (SAW, Icon, etc comes to mind).

What kits were you looking at for the Prado?
