Original equipment suspension is set up to support your vehicle for on-road conditions with a reasonable amount of weight. When you start to add vehicle accessories, attach a trailer or caravan and increase your load, the way the suspension handles the load changes. Couple that with uneven surfaces and off-road conditions, the OEM suspension can no longer take the additional strain.
Ironman 4×4 offer a complete integrated range of suspension kits, designs which have evolved over 50 years of suspension experience.
Ironman 4×4 recognise that there is no single solution practical for the varying needs of 4×4 owners and different driving conditions, therefore Ironman 4×4 offer a wide selection of matched components, once fitted will transform the vehicle around the drivers needs.

Coils springs produced by Ironman 4x4 undergo class leading manufacturing processes to ensure the highest possible quality, including:
All Ironman 4x4 coil springs are CNC Cold coiled to ensure perfect consistency and accuracy. The result of cold coiling means that springs are subjected to less heat during the manufacturing process to help maintain the materials properties and resulting in longer life.
Bar peeling is the process of forming the material to an exact size before coiling. This ensures the diameter remains constant and free of flaws along its entire length.
Manipulates material surface tension to reduce stress, greatly enhances spring life.
Each coil is fully compressed to a solid state 3 times to minimise coil settling.
Used in accordance to original vehicle manufacturers preference, progressive springs increase rate as the spring compresses, linear springs maintain a consistent rate throughout its range.
All springs are electro-static powdercoated for a durable finish.
Ironman 4x4 produce a wide range of Leaf Springs to suit a range of load ratings, all designed to maintain optimum ride height.
Leaf Springs produced by Ironman 4x4 undergo class leading manufacturing processes to ensure the highest possible quality including:

Where applicable, an additional wrap around the leaf eye protects from failure in case of damage.
Ironman 4x4 Pro Forge Upper Control Arms allow installation of larger tyres and further increased ride height by providing corrected wheel alignment and greater operating clearance around the arm as is often the limitation when using the OEM upper control arms.
The Pro-Forge Upper Control Arms, are manufactured from 6082 T6 alloy with silver anodised corrosion protection. Ultimate strength is achieved using a drop forged method of construction that hammers the arm into shape using a precise die. During this process the grain structure of the alloy is aligned with the new shape and any imperfections are removed.
This results in a much stronger and more durable product than a cast, machined or fabricated arm.
Low maintenance components which follow the OEM philosophy ensure durability is not compromised.
Bushes and ball joint are replaceable with OEM compatible or Genuine components.
All fixtures including brake wire provision are integrated within the arm.

The usable payload of many 4x4 vehicles today is minimal. Additional basic optional equipment along with two or three adult occupants will bring the vehicle close to its legal maximum weight (GVM) in many cases. Add long range fuel tanks, bull bars, winches, side steps, roof racks, recovery gear and a payload of camping equipment or an industrial type custom body and the vehicle will ultimately exceed the Original Equipment allowable Gross Vehicle Mass.
Original Equipment suspension is designed for comfort above all other considerations, thus load carrying and performance can be compromised. Whereas, Ironman 4x4 GVM upgraded suspension systems come with matched components for the ultimate in performance, load carrying and handling.
