The spring and shock absorber rates were developed to provide an improved ride quality, a reduction in body roll and improved stability. This kit is primarily designed to return the vehicle’s ride height to it’s original specification (up to 0.5”/13mm lift) and to reenergise the suspension capabilities through the addition of new shock absorbers.

Compatibility: For vehicles used primarily as a commuter vehicle with general use, such as commuting to and from work or the occasional long distance road trip as well as the odd occasion of travelling “off road”. This kit would be suitable for vehicles fitted with, a nudge bar, driving lights and standard wheels and tyres. The kit will also slightly increase the capability of carrying a slightly heavier load such as a bike rack, sporting equipment for your favourite pastime and for light weight towing.



The spring and shock absorber rates were developed to provide an improved load carrying capacity, with the advantage of increasing the stability in the way of less body roll, while, at all times having consideration for the ride comfort.
