Pedders Suspension been fixing, working with, modifying and designing our own shock absorbers for more than 60 years, so yeah, know a thing or two about shock absorbers. This page explains the basic mechanics of shock absorbers in Australia and also why you should choose us to assess, replace or upgrade your suspension system. After all, Pedders Suspension Australia’s No.1 suspension specialists.
A shock absorber’s primary role is to resist movement, to control the movement of the car’s springs and reduce body roll.
The shock resists this movement by controlling the flow of oil inside the shock through a number of control valves. Pedders valves are precisely engineered to provide a measured resistance to the oil flow and a very smooth ride.
The primary function of springs, whether they be Leaf, Coil or Torsion Bar, is to absorb the shocks that are created when driving over irregular road surfaces and maintain correct downward pressure on the road for optimum tire/road surface contact.
The spring rate or stiffness must be matched to the weight of the car and the weight of the other suspension components. The handling of most vehicles is substantially improved by increasing the original spring rate to an optimum rate which maximises tyre adhesion while reducing body roll. All Pedders stores stock a wide range of springs to suit most popular vehicles. Your Pedders service technician can advise you on the replacement of original equipment and show you which springs will enhance your suspension system to level beyond manufacturers original standards.
Coil Springs are the foundations of the modern suspension system with most car manufacturers preferring Coil Springs due to their advantages of weight, tunability, space and ease of manufacture. Pedders research, design and manufacture their own range of Coil Springs from their own World-Class Manufacturing Plant in Victoria, Australia to QS9001 standards. Coil Spring design and manufacturing is a craft which requires strict adherance to a demanding series of procedures, all of which are critical to the performance of the final product. Pedders undertakes the following key steps in relation to its Coil Spring Manufacturing Process.
Located at Pedders Head Office, the Pedders Coil Spring Manufacturing Plant, holds the Quality Standard QS 9001. The goal for Quality System Requirements QS-9001 is the development of fundamental quality systems that provide for continuous improvement, emphasising defect prevention and the reduction of variation and waste in the supply chain. Pedders is the only aftermarket supplier of coil springs in Australia to hold this quality certification.
What this means for the retail and trade customers of Pedders is that they can be assured that they are using a product that is equivalent if not exceeding the quality required for suppliers of coil springs to OE manufacturers.
Car springs absorb the shocks that are created when driving over uneven road surfaces. There is no high-quality 4x4 shock configuration without quality springs. They also maintain downward pressure on the road for optimum tyre/road surface contact. Don’t bounce around in your car and cause more damage to your chassis or suspension - to ensure that your springs are always at optimum level, get your parts checked out at Pedders.
Pedders Urethane bushes have a high capacity to bear tension, compression and friction and retain their hardness, even under the most adverse road conditions. This makes them well suited to the demands of heavy load carrying, firm suspension control or where regular exposure to corrosive materials is expected.
Another major advantage of Pedders urethane suspension bushes is they can be used to solve wheel alignment problems. This is particularly relevant for most front-wheel drive vehicles, as they do not have provision for wheel alignment correction. With these types of cars, as the suspension wears with age, vehicles can suffer from unnecessary tyre wear and unsafe handling.
When this happens, usually a result of original rubber bushes being too soft or over compliant for NVH, Pedders presets urethane bushes, with offset caster, make the ideal replacement.
In driving terms, this means better road holding, increased tire life, more responsive steering and a longer service life of suspension components with minimal effect on NVH.
