4WD Suspension Experts
We recognise that all clients and their desired use of vehicle can not be satisfied with one off the shelf set of springs and shocks, to satisfy your requirements we are able to specify the exact components required from our extensive range. For example for the Nissan GQ and GU Patrol models we have a choice of 8 Coil Spring part numbers and 8 Shock Absorber numbers to tailor the suspension to your exact requirements.
Why replace springs
To restore a vehicle to its original height due to the original springs having sagged.
To raise the vehicle due to increased loads such as long range fuel tanks, winches and camping gear or to improve ground clearance and approach/departure angles.
As most of our springs and shocks have a firmer rate of 10% to 50% depending on application, handling and ride comfort can be greatly improved.
Why replace shock absorbers
Shock absorbers directly affect the handling and braking performance of your vehicle and should be replaced when they deteriorate.
Worn shock absorbers are as dangerous as worn brake pads.
The shock absorber works by damping the movement of the suspension spring in both compression and rebound.
Shock absorbers are a consumable item and in some instances may last no longer than the first or second set of tyres.
When you vehicles shock absorbers deteriorate, your vehicle will not handle or brake the way that the manufacturer designed it to.
When installing improved vehicle springs, shock absorbers with a damping ability to suit the new springs should also be installed.
