Having the correct suspension for your vehicle is essential to road safety – both on and especially off-road. It takes experience, knowledge and the right equipment to determine and install the suspension that your 4×4 requires. We have a variety of products from the market leaders in suspension including King Shocks, Old Man Emu and Bilstein.
At Southern District Auto Centre, we are keen 4wders and go out bush as much as possible, so we understand the needs of the 4wder. We have built up a lot of years of experience in the 4wd industry, so if your 4wd needs a little love and attention.
Nothing delivers the control, handling, stability, comfort and sheer performance like a Bilstein Gas Pressure Shock Absorber. They produced the world’s first gas shock absorber and they continue to lead the way in technology and development of superior products. From monotube gas pressure shocks to single and twin tube Macpherson strut style suspensions, you won’t be disappointed with Bilstein.
Tough Dog’s award winning Foam Cell shock is our best selling shock for all round performance. Whether you head bush on the occasional weekend or for the majority of the year, Foam Cell shocks will handle your application.
The ‘Foam Cell’ that makes all the difference is a micro-cellular foam insert that helps to drastically reduce the effects of shock fade, allowing your shocks to perform better for longer, even on the harshest of corrugations. Cavitation and Aeration are the undoing of any shock absorber. As the shock is worked harder, the oil and gas in the outer chamber begins to mix and form bubbles, lowering the viscosity of the oil. When this aerated oil passes through the valve, there is reduced resistance, stopping the shock form performing correctly. The Foam Cell insert, with its trapped gas micro cells takes up the empty space in the shock normally taken up by air or nitrogen gas. This eliminates the possibility of bubbles forming, allowing the shock to get on with the job with an unparalleled resistance to shock fade.
Southern District Auto Centre 4wd specialises in fitting Eaton electric lockers. These allow you to take on the toughest and roughest of terrain with increased traction. Standard differentials don’t provide the best traction off-road and even limited slip differentials don’t limit enough to allow you to keep moving forward. Automatic locking differentials also cause problems because they are very noisy when disengaging and can interfere with highway driving. The locker system solves these problems by delivering off-road traction without compromising your on-road experience. The flick of a switch activates solenoid controlling the specialised locking mechanism inside the differential.
If you need to carry more than you can currently handle, then we can install Firestone airbag suspension – allowing you to get the most out of your 4x4s carrying capacity using an air pressure system. This system will keep the front end down and can level off centre loads and increase stability and control whilst reducing the strain on your current suspension. This is a must have for high load applications.
