Suspension is not something that you often see when you first look at a vehicle. But when you need it, suspension is the single most important upgrade you can make to your vehicle.
Original equipment suspension is set up to support your vehicle for on-road conditions with a reasonable amount of weight. When you start to add vehicle accessories, attach a trailer or a caravan and increase your load, the way the suspension handles the load changes. Couple that with uneven surfaces and off-road conditions, the OEM suspension can no longer take the additional strain therefore you are going to want suspension you can count on.
Step 1: WHAT’S YOUR LOAD
When your load changes, so should your springs. Any heavy accessories or towing load added to your vehicle, changes the handling and overall safety when driving. The vehicle’s springs must be matched to the load for optimum ride height and body control. Ironman 4×4 offers a range of springs to match the additional loads whether they are constant or temporary. When you start kitting out your vehicle, take into consideration the kerb weight and how much load you are adding, this will change what level of strength you need.
Step 2: CHOOSE YOUR TERRAIN
The terrain you travel most, determines what type of shock absorber is right for you! Forces generated by a loaded vehicle in rough terrain versus a lightly loaded vehicle in smooth terrain, differ greatly and can be considerably higher. Creating safe and appropriate dynamic handling at higher than original weights requires careful consideration. The range of Ironman 4x4 shock absorbers are designed to cover all terrains and possess the correct amount of damping resistance to provide a safe and comfortable ride.
Step 3: WHAT’S YOUR RIDE STYLE
Your preferred ride style is important to know when selecting the level of valving resistance in your shock absorbers. Ironman 4x4 shock absorbers adapt to the velocity of the compression and rebound stroke which provides the right amount of control to suit your driving style.
Step 4: FIND YOUR VEHICLE’S SUSPENSION KIT
Ironman 4x4 have a range of products to suit your suspension needs. Covering most popular 4x4 wagons and utes, Ironman 4x4 have a range of 4x4 lift kits and suspension kits to cover your essential needs as well as additional components to complement your ride and further enhance your vehicle and driving experience.
