Additional weight that your vehicle feels when towing magnifies the force on its suspension and braking systems. Additional weight, especially when towing, significantly reduces suspension control and can cause wheel alignment and vehicle handling issues. Pedders offers a range of towing solutions to correct these issues and ensure your vehicle and trailer sit level, including heavy duty springs & shocks and AirAssist Air Bag suspension.
Additional weight from a trailer also effects braking performance. More weight means more heat and stress which increases stopping distances. Get the best stopping power and braking performance here so your vehicle can tow safely.

Currently there is no Australian Federal Government-approved engineering test to legally increase the towing capacity of a vehicle. As such we cannot increase the official towing capacity rating of a vehicle, we can only offer products that allow the vehicle to tow this weight more safely and effectively.
The cost to install a Tow Bar depends on the vehicle type and the load-rating of the tow bar. Higher quality heavy-duty tow bars can be more costly, however they are generally engineered to higher standards to ensure they are safe to carry the rated load.
Pedders stores are licensed to sell and install Hayman Reese Tow Bars. Pedders has more than 70 locations nation-wide that can not only supply and install a Tow Bar, but also weigh your trailer and confirm your tow vehicle’s Towing Capacity to ensure you stay safe and legal when towing!
