TOUGH DOG SUSPENSION

SPRINGS

COIL SPRINGS
Designed and manufactured in Australia from German X5K spring steel, Tough Dog coil springs offer superior ride quality & load carrying ability.
Hot formed on precision mandrels to maintain spring memory, they can handle just about anything you can throw at them.

LEAF SPRINGS
Tough Dog leaf springs are a truly progressive rate leaf spring. Primary and secondary stage leaves ensure that the vehicle’s ride remains uncompromised. As the spring is compressed under load, the heavier second stage leaves
prevent excessive sag.

SHOCKS

40MM ADJUSTABLE SHOCK
The 40mm adjustable shock brings the ability to fine tune your ride control to just about every 4WD user. The shock offers 9 different stages of adjustment, to fine tune the ride characteristics to your personal preference and application.

45MM BIG BORE ADJUSTABLE SHOCK
These tough puppies are the largest bore externally adjustable shocks available on the market. There is nothing that can compare to the 45mm bore in a 70mm outer casing. This is one serious shock.

41MM FOAM CELL SHOCK
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.

53MM RALPH SHOCK
The Tough Dog ‘Ralph’ shock is the largest 4WD shock on the market. We redesigned shocks originally intended for prime movers to suit 4WD applications.

35MM NITRO GAS SHOCK
Nitro gas shocks are built with multi stage velocity sensitive valvin. As the shock moves faster to absorb small bumps in the road like corrugations, the valving responds to maintain the ride control.

COMPLETE STRUTS
Modern IFS vehicles use strut style suspension in the front axle, and the spring rate required can be more than 750lbs in some instances. Tough Dog offer their complete range of struts in complete assembly variants – at no extra cost!

ARMOURED VEHICLE REPLACEMENT

Introducing a comprehensive armoured vehicle suspension solution, tailored to your needs, and integrated into your brand, 4way Suspension, the creators of Tough Dog Suspension components, have identified a need in the armoured vehicle industry for a larger bore, extreme heavy duty, comprehensive armoured vehicle replacement suspension solution. The first, and largest bore twin tube foam cell shock absorber is available, and it’s available in your brand! 

SHOCK ABSORBERS

AVR 50mm Bore Shock absorbers are the largest bore shocks available. The increased oil capacity results in superior stamina and increased valving capability for total vehicle control. 

Our ‘state of the art’ Roehrig Shock Dynameter allows an exact measurement of the forces exerted on the shock during extreme use

SWAY BARS

Controlling the body roll created by the substantial amount of weight added to the vehicle during the armouring process is imperative to maintaining good road holding characteristics. AVR have a range of Heavy Duty Sway Bars that will restore the handling qualities of the vehicle. 

LEAF SPRINGS

Tough Dog Leaf Springs are a truly progressive rate leaf spring. Each leaf is set slightly higher than the leaf above so there is contact along the whole length of each leaf.

APPLICATIONS

EMERGENCY
The lowering capabilities of Air Suspension provides easy access for seamless patient transfer. Vibration isolation from the Air Springs is also a key factor, this isolates the vibrations from the road to the body of the vehicle which results in first class ride quality, comfort & stability for the driver & passengers on board.

HEAVY AUTOMOTIVE

Installing Air Suspension will give you just that, the flexible material, carrying capacity, & adjustability of the Air Springs will ensure you get the best of both worlds.

ARMOURED
Load carrying & ground clearance is important for armored vehicles. With Air Suspension you will maintain your vehicles optimum ride height under all load conditions resulting in no more suspension sag, reduced bottoming out, improved ride quality, comfort & stability. Vibration isolation from the Air Springs is also a key factor, this isolates the vibrations from the road to the body of the vehicle which results in first class ride quality, comfort & stability for the driver & passengers on board.
