The Supashock lift kit system is designed, manufactured, assembled and tested in Australia, for Australian conditions, so you can drive your Colorado through the toughest terrain you can throw at it.
The 4x4 dampers used in our Colorado Lift Kit are derived from the same technologies Supashock have developed for high-performance lift applications such as V8 Supercars, the factory fitted suspension of the legendary HSV GTS-R W1, the suspension upgrade on the HSV Colorado SportsCat, and active and passive suspension systems for military vehicles.
The dampers in the Supashock lift kit for your Colorado are specifically tuned for the Holden Colorado by our experienced chassis systems engineers to provide superior comfort and performance for all driving applications that your Colorado may face.
The proprietary piston and valve design inside the dampers in the Supashock lift kit has been developed to offer high responsiveness and wheel control for maximum traction in both on-road and off-road applications, so imagine the kind of grip your Colorado 4x4 will get.
Applying this technology to the Supashock 4x4 range of lift kit provides Supashock equipped vehicles with unrivalled handling and braking performance, without compromising ride quality. Your Colorado will be able to withstand anything with a Supashock lift kit.
WHY SUPASHOCK 4X4 SUSPENSION FOR MY HOLDEN COLORADO?
Australian Made - Every lift kit is designed, tested, manufactured and assembled in Australia.
Technology - The same technology used in every lift kit has also been used in Motorsport, Mining and Defence.
Materials - Every lift kit is manufactured from aerospace alloys.
Durability - Each lift kit has far superior strength compared to competitor and OEM products, maximising service life.
A key feature of each 4x4 damper in a Colorado Supashock lift kit is Supashock’s patented Shell Reservoir System, which consists of a floating piston that separates the pressurised gas and oil inside the shock absorber.
The large-diameter main shaft of the lift kit allows a high oil volume without the need for an external reservoir, providing the performance of a monotube damper with the packaging benefits of a twin-tube design. This kind of technology will make your Colorado capable of handling just about anything.
This large oil volume combined with a billet aluminium damper piston makes the Supashock 4x4 dampers in the lift kit extremely thermally efficient for your Colorado.
This results in consistent performance for your Colorado during extended use on rough roads or when tackling rough corrugations that make other dampers overheat and lose performance.. This lowers the likelihood of shock fade meaning that you maintain handling response and therefore safety, no matter where you drive your Colorado – all thanks to your Supashock lift kit.

- Additional problems that could occur if you lift your vehicle too high include;
- Poor wheel alignment
- Unevenly worn tyres
- Poor on-road handling
- Greater chance of driveline damage
- Stretching of brake lines and electrical components
- Once you lift your vehicle, there’s a significant chance it will handle differently
What goes into a Holden Colorado lift kit?
