Australian automotive steering and suspension parts supplier, ROADSAFE, has released a quality aftermarket shock absorber program consisting of OE replacement or enhancement options.
The ROADAFE STR and 4WD shock absorber ranges now form integral parts of the ROADSAFE aftermarket product offering, bringing competitively priced quality to automotive repairers and suspension specialists nationwide.
ROADSAFE STR covers replacement shock absorbers for passenger vehicles and daily drives, while ROADSAFE 4WD is a performance enhancement for 4WD vehicles, suited up to a 50mm lift.
The products are tested locally to suit Australian conditions and specifically built for Aussie terrain. All ROADSAFE testing is conducted in a dedicated research and design facility located in Victoria, where the products are proven using a stringent testing process, including visual inspections, shock dyno tests, vehicle fitment and on-road testing. Product quality is backed by a comprehensive three-year/100,000-kilometre warranty.
ROADSAFE STR shock absorbers are nitrogen gas charged to provide precise and consistent valving. The products feature high quality, hard chromed, finished shafts to eliminate wear, chipping and drag. Finely tuned valving to suit each specific vehicle application ensures improved vehicle comfort, control, steering response and reduced emergency stopping distances. High quality piston rod guides ensure smooth operation with superior strength against side loading.
Each ROADSAFE STR shock absorber pressure tube is seamless, ensuring that they are 100 per cent cylindrical with high burst pressures, resulting in consistent performance and reliability. High quality rubber mounting bushings reduce noise, vibrations and harshness, whilst ensuring stable mounting.
The range is available in sealed strut, telescopic and spring seated shock absorber designs as determined by vehicle specifications, ensuring that repairers have easy access to an extensive range of shock absorbers to suit a vast array of vehicle makes and models being driven on Australia’s roads.
ROADSAFE 4WD shock absorbers feature a larger surface area for optimum heat dissipation and excellent dampening control properties. The big bore design ensures greater oil capacity and temperature control under extreme four-wheel driving conditions.
Additional features include a large diameter, high quality chrome finished shaft with an internal rod stop. These shock absorbers also feature a large surface, piston rod guide to support increased side load and heavy bump impacts. Additionally, the range benefits from high quality upper shaft seals to handle the demands of rugged terrain, along with heavy duty, double welded mounting points for increased stability and strength.
ROADSAFE 4WD direct fit shock absorbers are available in nitrogen gas (up to 35mm bore) and foam cell (up to 40mm bore) configurations to ensure reduced fade, aeration and cavitation control.
The range is available from Burson Auto Parts and other quality independent auto parts resellers nationwide.
