When matched with a set of corresponding Dobinsons Heavy Duty Gas Shock Absorbers, Dobinsons Springs & Suspension can provide you with unrivaled performance and handling.
The shock absorber consists of low pressure nitrogen gas which eliminates aeration within the oil reservoir, meaning no bouncing, sloppiness or deterioration of ride. The tough twin tube design can hold a larger volume of oil keeping the internal workings cooler. It features tefloned piston rings, special anti-bumps stops and polyurethane paint to increase the life of the shock. The valve stacking system controls dampening and enhances safety and comfort while the valve coding maximises off-road and on-road performance.
Dobinsons springs & suspensions’s range of leaf springs are no exception. This includes raised and heavy duty leaf springs for 4wd’s, heavy duty and parabolic replacement springs for trucks and commercial vehicles and raised and replacement springs for 4×2 utilities and passenger vehicles.
All leaf lengths are designed and calculated to achieve High Performance spring. Inappropriate leaf lengths will concentrate stress in one particular area and will cause premature sagging or breaking.
In most cases there are multiple options available to ensure the correct spring is available to meet each customer's requirements.
Manufactured using premium grade Sup 9 silicon manganese spring steel, Dobinsons range of leaf springs are made to world leading quality standards.
It is important to remember that a spring supports weight and sets the vehicle ride height, it determines the optimum limits of the suspension travel and is a major contributor to the vehicle’s ride and handling. But a spring cannot operate effectively without a correctly matched shock absorber.
Alignments & Suspension Components
When raised suspension has been fitted to a vehicle it can alter the vehicle's suspension, brakes and steering geometry and in some cases this requires additional suspension components to ensure the vehicle's handling and performance isn’t compromised.
This is especially important in vehicles fitted with larger lift kits. Some of these components are: Castor bush kits, sway bar extensions, panhard rods, castor plate kits, brake proportioning valve extensions, strut caps & driveline and suspension component spacers.
When vehicles are fitted with additional accessories such as steel bullbars, winches, dual battery kits and other frontal accessories the weight placed on the torsion bars can be dramatically increased.
The torsion bars fitted to the vehicle will not withstand the additional weight placed on the vehicle and will be prone to sag and will offer poor handling and offroad performance.
Dobinsons heavy duty 4wd torsion bars feature increased spring rate to better handle the additional weight and provide far improved handling, ride height and offroad performance. So however YOU would like your car to sit, lifted, lower or wider, at AutoCraze we can help you do it!
