shock absorbers

Introducing a larger bore, heavy-duty, armoured vehicle replacement suspension solution.

Our shock absorbers are the largest bore shocks available with a 20mm Rod, 50mm bore and 70mm casing. The increased oil capacity results in a cooler operating shock with increased valving capability for total vehicle control. The Foam Cell sleeve ensures that the shock performs well in all applications.

IFS Vehicles transmit all of the weight of the vehicle through the lower strut eye bush. Our shock absorbers utilise a multi-layered design with a third metal ring laminated into the rubber for maximum strength and durability.

Lightweight & Tough: Engineered for Armored Vehicles

Made from X5K spring steel, our coils can be designed with less material while maintaining superior ride quality & load-carrying characteristics. This means the spring retains its original memory even after heavy loading.

THE RESULT? A lighter, tougher coil designed specifically for armoured vehicle applications.

Advanced Techniques: Unleashing the Potential of Steel

Manufactured using an exacting, computer controlled system, our coil springs are CAD designed, and the blank steel is bar peeled to remove any surface defects.
The bar peeled steel is heated to around 1000ºC and then rolled into shape before being quenched in oil, which hardens the springs to 62HRC.

From Strength to Finish: The Final Steps for Peak Performance

Once hardened, they are then tempered at 400ºC, and if required, machine ground to suit the application. After tempering, the coil is shot peened, giving the coil a high intensity finish to ensure maximum fatigue life.
Finally, each spring is phosphate coated for corrosion resistance, and powder coated to create the finished product.

Progressive Design: Optimizing Ride for Every Load

Our 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. Flat bar steel in SUP9 and SUP9A grade is cut to length, then the centre hole, diamond cut ends, and other fixtures are cold pressed into the steel.

Military-Grade Strength: Hot Forging and Precise Cambering

The military wraps and rolled eyes are formed before the springs are heated to around 1000ºC in a gas forge, and hot cambered to the required specifications.
Quenched in oil to harden the springs, the leaves are then tempered by being reheated in the forge.

The Final Touches: Optimizing Strength, Longevity, and Corrosion Resistance

After tempering, the springs are shot-peened to a high-intensity finish and stress relieved to guard against sag in the spring.
Finally, each leaf is individually coated in primer and top coat to ensure that every part of the steel is coated. After assembly, the leaves are dipped in paint to ensure total coverage.

steering dampers

Designed as a cost-effective upgrade for when the OEM gear isn’t getting the job done, Our EXT Steering Damper will give you control and feeling back in your steering set up. With a 35mm internal bore and our Foam Cell insert to fight against fade in harsh use situations, this damper is the perfect companion for users looking to return their steering to OEM standard after adding the extra weight of armour & run-flat tyres to the vehicle.
