The Supashock 4x4 dampers operate unlike any other product on the market, and feature world leading technology that provides the owner with off-road capability not available anywhere else.
The Supashock system is designed, manufactured, assembled and tested in Australia, for Australian conditions. The 4x4 dampers are derived from the same technologies Supashock have developed for high-performance 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 aftermarket options for numerous military vehicles.
Supashock dampers are specifically tuned for individual vehicle models by experienced chassis tuning engineers to provide superior comfort and performance in all driving conditions. The proprietary piston and valve design inside Supashock dampers has been developed to offer high force response and wheel control for maximum tyre grip in motorsport applications. Applying this technology to the Supashock 4x4 range provides Supashock equipped vehicles with unrivalled handling and braking performance, without compromise of ride quality.
WHY SUPASHOCK 4X4?
Supashock 4x4 shock absorbers feature an inverted-strut design developed originally for motorsport and mining applications. The main shaft has a huge 64mm diameter which offers extremely high strength and resistance to bending during large impacts or rock strikes.
A key feature of each 4x4 damper 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 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 large oil volume combined with a billet aluminium damper piston make Supashock 4x4 dampers extremely thermally efficient. This results in consistent performance during extended use on rough roads or when tackling those dreaded corrugations. This lowers the likelihood of shock fade meaning the driver maintains handling response and therefore - safety.
