While it’s not possible to purchase a suspension for 4×4 Australia, there are third party sellers on websites such as Amazon and eBay that offer them for international buyers. Buying from these sellers may not be the best idea though, as many provide a low-quality product for a high price. This leaves one option: purchase a 4×4 suspension from an Australian retailer. The downside of this is that there are not many local retailers to buy them from. However, if you take the time to search, you can find one pretty easily. The upside of this is that you will be able to purchase a high-quality product with a warranty for around $400. There are also a few sellers out there that offer cheaper products but do not offer any warranty or technical support.
The first step would be to determine the quality of the product. This can be done through reading reviews on the website or on Amazon. If you have a 4×4 suspension already, use it as a benchmark in comparison to the new suspension. Also keep in mind that the higher the weight of your vehicle, the more important this is. As an example, if you have a Holden Ute with a weight of around 3000kg then you definitely need a set of high-quality suspension as well as shocks and springs. If your vehicle weighs under 3000kg, then you still need a set of high-quality suspension but you don’t need as much. For example, if you have a Toyota Yaris with a weight of 1800kg then the appropriate amount of suspension is around 15%. It’s easy to find out how much suspension you should be buying. First, calculate the weight of your car. This would be the engine and transmission (with extra weight at the back). Then add the weight of the spare wheel, as well as a few other small parts (max weight 3.2kg).
After you have a good idea of how much suspension you need, check out the different models offered by the retailers on their website. For example, Zugspitze Sports sells a range of products from bumper bars and swingarms to shock absorbers and suspension springs. The great thing about buying these products from an Australian retailer is that they will give technical support with their products.
