Designed to dramatically improve on road comfort, road handling and load carrying capacity, the Systems Suspension also improves off road performance by improving wheel travel, traction and ground clearance.
Whether you are driving on the highway or off the beaten track the fitment of a 4WD Systems Suspension will provide a significant improvement over factory original or worn out suspension systems.
It is common knowledge that a poor suspension system gives spongy, unstable road handling, pitching, limited load carrying capacity and towing ability which ultimately causes driver fatigue, longer travel times and reduced road safety.
Off road, the limitations of a tired suspension means a bouncing or bone jarring ride, damage to the vehicle and its contents, limited wheel travel causing wheel lifting and wheel spin combined with poor ground clearance - hence poor traction, bump steering and generally limited 4WD capability. Not to mention excessive and uneven tyre wear.
Shock Absorbers Huge 41mm internal diameter and longer travel results in increased fluid oil capacity. More fluid means more viscosity means more effective damping action for longer as the thicker fluid oil ports through the valving in the piston head. Multiple stage valving improves response to varying road and track conditions. Smooth controlled ride not sharp or spongey.
Torsion Bars Increased diameter for increased spring rate, improving control under brakes, cornering and pitch.
Coils Precisely engineered ends are designed to fit each vehicle correctly. Accurate hardening and tempering reduces breakage. Fully scragg and load tested.
Leafs Made from high grade spring steel. Diamond cut leafs reduce friction, hence greater heat dispersal and reduced wear. Military wrap for extra strength and safety Spring clips loosely clamped to prevent premature wear and reduced noise
What is not so commonly understood is that a correctly matched suspension system for your vehicle and your specific type of driving application can overcome all of these problems.
A Systems Suspension will yield a level of comfort not previously considered possible, yet at the same time still give a substantial increase in the vehicle's load carrying/towing capacity as well as improved wheel travel for off road handling. Depending on the individual's needs an increase in ground clearance can also be achieved.
It is important to understand that your suspension system must not only have matched components but that these components be selected appropriately for the vehicle and the type of use. As you are spending the money, you need the guarantee of the best possible performance for your specific needs.
Thus at 4WD Systems we consider the model of vehicle, what motor and wheel base, whether towing a caravan or trailer, determine the payload required and of course give consideration to any accessories fitted (ie. roof rack, extra tanks, bullbar, winch, dual batteries etc) to derive what suspension system you need.
There is simply no such thing as "one spring fits all".
Based in Adelaide South Australia, 4WD Systems commenced operations in the mid 1980's and over the years has progressed to become a modern innovative manufacturer with national representation, and the ability to freight products throughout the world.
South Australia is the driest state in the driest continent of the world; our backyard is one of the harshest environments known to mankind and this has been the proving ground of our entire range of products - Desert proven. If a product can survive our rugged outback tracks, scorching heat, dusty conditions, overloaded vehicles on cross country travel then we know they can survive anything.
"Gear to Goannawhere" best describes the range of 4WD Systems accessories - we design, manufacture and distribute best of breed accessories to take anyone - anywhere. Safely and reliably.
The Perentie, our motif, is the largest Australian Goanna Lizard, growing to 3m or 10ft in length - it is the predatory ruler of the outback. Like the Perentie our range of accessories have evolved with time and are tough, resilient and above all excellent value for money.
