Process - Assessment

The Ultimate Suspension team has been providing solutions to our customers’ driving needs since 1975. Our years of experience and know-how mean we always approach our customers with quality and product value.

From the first point of contact with us, you’ll know that you and your vehicle are in safe hands. We guarantee that you’ll be met by trained staff who know exactly what they’re talking about when assessing your vehicle’s requirements. We’re not all the same so why should your suspension setup be just like everyone else’s? We ask you the questions that matter because here at Ultimate Suspension, we want to know more about our customers and what they use their vehicles for.

Suspension requirements and results are relative to the vehicle’s weight, loads, and towing requirements. For the best results, you cannot afford a compromised system - that is, one kit that fits all. Insist on an ultimate fully integrated system.

The first step in identifying the customer’s requirements is to address the vehicle weight.

The only successful way to achieve active weights is to use a Safe-T-Stop PLATRONIC test platform, which not only provides Gross Vehicle Weight but individual corner and split axle weights. The Safe-T-Stop testing platform also provides records of weight transfer under brakes which is imperative to calculate front axle load and spring rates.

Once the vehicle’s corner weights are identified, then the spring rate can be calculated. To control the spring rebound, the shock absorber damping forces can be formulated. In short, the Spring carries the weight and the Shock controls the spring rebound.

Before investing in your vehicle’s suspension, please check out the following:


Safety by design. Enhances handling and performance with greater ride control, including braking.

Comfort both on and off-road, providing flex and stability.

Reliability from quality products backed by The Ultimate Warranty.

Articulation providing a well balanced suspension flex and maintaining traction on diagonally opposite, opposed corners.

Performance. As our name implies, the ultimate in ride control, traction, and handling.

So if you’re after the best bang for your buck - or the most exotic components - we’ll provide you with the best possible quality service, along with the know-how and capability to match.

Come into our headquarters and we’ll show you exactly what sets our products and services apart from the rest. For example, our famous Aussie Ryder shocks. A twin-tube glass shock that is completely rebuildable in-house by our mechanic experts, backed by our industry-leading two-year Unlimited Kilometres Warranty.

The Ultimate Suspension - the solution to your motoring needs.

Quality is not’s priceless.

Insist on the ultimate suspension!

Understanding your requirements

The most critical first step in any upgrade or modification is understanding the application requirements. A one size fits all solution will never provide optimal safety or comfort. From weight distribution, braking forces, ride quality, and endurance, only a custom solution can provide the ultimate outcome.
