4x4 Suspension Overview
A perfect 4x4 suspension is a type of suspension system that allows all four wheels of a vehicle to be in contact with the ground at all times.
Contact provides better traction and stability, especially when driving on uneven surfaces. There are several different types of 4x4 shock absorbers and suspension kits & lift kits.
What is a shock absorber?
Shock Absorbers are designed to smooth out the bumps as your 4x4 moves over uneven surfaces. There are many different types of shock absorbers, but they all have the same basic function which is to smooth contact with the ground so your tyres can get traction.
Lift kits work by raising the body of your 4x4 so that there is more clearance between the ground and the undercarriage. This extra clearance can be used to install larger tyres or even just to give your 4x4 lift kit a more aggressive look.
What is independent suspension?
Independent suspension is a type of suspension system where each wheel can move independently of the others. This allows for more comfort and improved traction as each wheel can adjust to the terrain separately.
What are coil springs?
Coil springs are a type of spring that is made from coils of metal. These springs are used in many different types of suspension systems and are often used in conjunction with shock absorbers for a smoother ride.
The shock absorber is one of the main components of the 4x4 suspension system. The shocks help to cushion the ride and keep the wheels in contact with the ground, while the springs provide support and allow the wheels to move up and down as needed
Aftermarket Suspension kits
Suspension kit are available for many different types of vehicles, including cars, trucks, and SUVs. They can be installed by a professional, or in some cases, the kits come with instructions for do-it-yourself installation.
