Hi All,
Could you do me a favour and check the rear suspension part numbers on your cars please?
I'm trying to understand the difference between available suspension parts, particularly for how they might relate to towing capacity, if at all.

Why?
Hyundai Australia tell us that the down-ball weight rating on the AU Palisade is only 100kg (220lbs).
Hyundai Australia are apparently working on a "Load Assist Kit", which will (allegedly) increase the ball weight to 180kg.

But... North American Palisade ball-weights are already rated at 500lbs (227kg).

Here's what I know so far.

Part numbers
AU = Australia. AU part numbers verified in-person, crawling under cars to get part numbers.
NA = North America. Gathered from Forums and Parts Catalogues.

Shocks:
  • 55307-S8000 AU Palisade 8 Seat (unsure if Diesel or Petrol).
  • 55307-S8100 NA Awd, without self-level. Fwd, without self-level.
  • 55307-S8380 AU Palisade Highlander 7 & 8 Seat AWD Diesel.
  • 55367-S9000 NA Awd, with self-level. (Kia Telluride parts Catalogue).
  • 55367-S9300 NA Awd, with self-level. Fwd, with self-level.
Springs:
  • 55330-S8100 NA Fwd, without self-level, 8 passenger.
  • 55330-S8200 NA Awd, without self-level, 8 passenger.
  • 55330-S8250 NA Awd, without self-level, 7 passenger.
  • 55335-S8300 AU Palisade Highlander 8 Seat AWD Diesel.
  • 55335-S8350 AU Palisade Highlander 7 Seat AWD Diesel.
  • 55330-S8400 NA Fwd, with self-level & without self-level.
  • 55330-S8450 NA Awd, with self-level & without self-level.
  • 55330-S9450 NA Awd, with self-level. (Kia Telluride parts Catalogue)
Refs:
Notes:
  • North American "Limited" and "Calligraphy" trims come with self-leveling rear suspension
  • Self-leveling suspension does not increase tow capacity or the rated ball weight.
  • The hitch weight rating remains 500lbs (227kg) and max towing at 5,000lbs (2200kg) on all trims regardless of the tow package.
