SMART GVM Upgrades
SMART GVM Upgrades
GVM upgrade kits are well established in the Australian market, however through considerable customer feedback and research garnered over years of fitting suspension upgrades, we’ve learnt that many of the current GVM products are a compromise at best.
While they may be able to carry the required load, their ride, handling, height and other important factors all suffer as a result. It became clear that customers not only wanted the increase in load carrying capacity, but also:
• OPTIMAL PASSENGER COMFORT
• MINIMUM VEHICLE HEIGHT
• MAXIMUM VEHICLE HANDLING
Durashock Suspension Systems took up the customer challenge. Following two years of exhaustive research, design and testing, we're proud to announce that the federally approved Durashock SMART GVM upgrade for Toyota HiLux GUN 4x4 and Kun 26 4x4 , LandCruiser 200 series and LandCruiser VDJ 78/79 series are now available.
Join the SMART revolution today and you too can enjoy all the benefits which the Durashock SMART GVM upgrades can offer.
SMART DESIGN, THE SMART CHOICE WITH DURASHOCK'S SMART GVM UPGRADES DELIVERING:
SUPERIOR LOAD CARRYING CAPACITY... Durashock SMART GVM upgrades provide one of the largest federally approved gross vehicle mass upgrades for Toyota four wheel drive vehicles offering an increase in load carrying capacity of 600kg (model dependent). Featuring model dependent increases of up to 600kg, Durashock SMART GVMs can legally help your vehicle carry more. It’s the ideal solution for maximising your vehicle’s weight capacity while staying within legal limits. Strong yet agile, maxed out yet controlled – these are the qualities that our Durashock Smart GVM system offers your vehicle.
MINIMAL HEIGHT INCREASE... High lifts when unladen are the norm with most GVM upgrade packages. However, these lifts alter the vehicle's centre of gravity reducing it's handling, performance and safety, and make it harder to load and unload. Durashock's SMART GVM upgrades are specifically designed to minimise vehicle lift.
ALL ROUND COMFORT... The extreme loads conventional GVM upgrade packages are asked to shoulder require GVM coil and leaf springs to be heavier, stiffer and often larger than standard factory components, with the result being that they regularly provide harsh, unforgiving rides, particularly when the vehicle is driven unladen. Durashock SMART GVM upgrades have been purposely designed to deliver maximum load carrying capabilities together with the best possible compromise of passenger friendly ride and handling characteristics, regardless of whether the vehicle is loaded or not.
REAL SAFETY BENEFITS... Durashock SMART GVM's class leading load carrying capability, minimal height increase and all round comfort come together to create a GVM upgrade package that offers more real driver and occupational health and safety benefits than any other GVM product on the market.
Our other benefits we offer are:
Reduced chance of overloading
Lower centre of gravity
Reduced chance of rollover in emergency situations
Lower tray, door, tailgate and sill heights
Reduced chance of manual handling injuries
All round comfort benefits
Reduced driver stress and fatigue
TESTED & FEDERALLY CERTIFIED... Durashock SMART GVM upgrades are the only GVM upgrades tested and approved by the Federal Department of Transport and Road Safety Standards to feature SMART design. Under the terms of this approval, vehicle's upgraded with SMART GVM upgrades are legally recognised as having undergone a SSM and so receive a second silver compliance plate (many GVM upgrade packages are classified as modifications). The legal advantages of owning and operating an "unmodified' vehicle such as a SMART GVM equipped vehicle, makes Durashock SMART GVM upgrades the preferred choice of many large fleet and corporate customers.
