APE Suspension are suppliers and licenced installers for EFS suspension products.
Currently we can offer a GVM Upgrade for a Federal registered (Pre registration) Toyota Landcruiser 70 series Trayback or Troop Carrier to 3,760 kgs. Up from 3,300 kgs. And we can also offer a GVM upgrade for a State registered vehicle.
The suspension setup of many new 4X4 vehicles today is fitted simply for its smooth however UNLADEN ride. We know that as soon as a new owner add a load or installs accessories to their vehicle (i.e. a canopy, draws, roof rack, tow bar etc) additional basic optional equipment and two or three adult male occupants will strain the vehicles current suspension whilst bringing the vehicle close to its legal maximum weight (GVM). Add long range fuel tanks, bull bars, winches, side steps, recovery gear and a payload of camping equipment or an industrial type custom body and the vehicle will ultimately exceed the GVM or allowable Gross Vehicle Mass.
The answer therefore is an ‘EFS GVM Upgrade suspension kit’.
Fitted by ourselves (sorry DOT rules) these kits are fully tested in conjunction with a Certified Automotive Engineering Signatory over long periods to achieve maximum stability, braking performance, ADR (Australian Design Rules) conformity and operator comfort, before test data and documentation are forwarded to the DEPARTMENT of INFRASTRUCTURE, TRANSPORT, REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT and LOCAL GOVERNMENT for analysis.
WHY DO VEHICLES REQUIRE G.V.M (Gross Vehicle Mass) SUSPENSION UPGRADES?
- The probability of Insurance companies who will void a payout if the vehicle is loaded beyond approved GVM.
- Possibility of litigation under common law if the vehicle is operated beyond its legal Load Limits.
- Requirements to load vehicle and operate safely with weight beyond current Original Equipment limits for heavy and/or remote work.
- Need to protect Business, Managers from claims for breaches of OH&S rules and employee negligence.
