The original shock absorber in your vehicle is designed for one reason, to outlast its warranty and limit travel to certain components such as rack ends, CVs and driveshafts.
While we know and understand the importance of limiting travel to these components we also understand that having an OE length shock absorber means restrictions in suspension performance, particularly offroad. The OE length shock absorber limits suspension travel and has a reduced body size which results in far less oil volume and therefore less ability to keep the oil cool, which is critical in the performance and lifespan of the shock absorber!
Further to this, having a longer shock absorber means your tyres, the most important part of traction in off road performance terms and also safety, have the BEST chance of keeping traction to the ground, meaning you will get further!
We are offering an industry leading product and we are prepared to stand by this statement by offering an industry leading warranty! With a LIFETIME and UNLIMITED KM warranty against leaking you can be assured you’re receiving a product up to the rigours of Australia, from the outback to the inner city! Please see warranty area for full product warranty details.
Our competitors won’t want to tell you what they have, because they don’t have it! NOK seals are the best shock seal on the market, Fuchs oil is the best oil and combined with high quality internal guides and wearing components means a quality unit is guaranteed. Other companies look at price, however, maximising profits is not our goal, instead it is to maximise shock performance and longevity! To complement the quality of the internal components the exterior of the shock receives OE Quality E-coating on the threaded sleeve which achieves the highest result during salt spray corrosion testing and combined with a top quality painting process means a long lasting finish.
This is the heart of your ride and control! Every vehicle has varying motion ratios and loads placed on the shock absorber. This means you cannot have the common one size fits all mindset. We have focused on ride comfort and user control to give you a smooth yet controlled feel to your ride. NOTE: varying spring rates will alter the ride of the vehicle
PSR is determined to bring you the best product! With our years of experience on automotive suspension solutions we can understand what we need to increase in size and what is needed to make the product tough, long lasting and robust.
Problem areas are commonly the lower peg on strut units. Failure of this area when suspension is compressed beyond its normal range of travel can happen and having a unit tough enough to take that force is imperative, a tapered oversized peg is standard to combat this issue. This is most common to occur when on the beach or heavily whooped out roads.
Another factor that can reduce performance of a shock unit is body wall thickness. There is a fine line between being strong enough to withstand rock rash and impacts and not being too thick that heat cannot dissipate causing overheating and fade of the unit. We have selected 2mm for the outer body, this is a balance to protect and also keep the unit cool.
All this means you have to find the balance between size and functionality! Don’t believe everything they tell you!
The original equipment rubber bush has a certain “range of motion”. This needs to be increased in an aftermarket application due to the increase in suspension travel. Many other manufacturers “reduce” the amount of rubber in the bush to avoid failure that comes from repetitive impact, “normal driving situation”. This is a massive issue as there is not enough rubber material to yield and allow the bush to rotate. The compromise is a “fail safe” bush. This is an industry leading design that means the bush has enough rubber to allow for full range of motion while having the steel material to combat large impact forces that tear bushes apart. At all costs avoid steel bushes, these will make noise, squeak and while at first be the better solution, once the wearing (do you mean bearing) material is gone will be a major annoyance. This means, yes you guessed it, we have the best solution again!
PSR TTG Shock Absorbers are designed to be maintenance free. However, it is recommended, each time the vehicle is cleaned mud and debris are removed from the shock absorber, particularly around the seal area at the top of the body. Do NOT use harsh chemicals to clean the shock absorbers, use soapy water to rinse only. Do not aim pressure washers at the top seal either, this pressure can cause issues and force water into the shock or damage the seal. The suspension mounting bolts, nuts and other fixings should be inspected after 500kms and at regular service intervals to ensure they are tensioned satisfactorily.
