Why Lovells 4X4 Kits?
Lovells Suspension Kits Lovells offers complete 4x4 suspension kits, with properly ‘matched’ components to ensure vehicle handling characteristics and load-carrying ability are correct, safe and uncompromised.
To achieve this, Lovells initially carry out an evaluation of a vehicle via road testing, component analysis, performance and specification examination. Road testing involves driving a vehicle over many types of terrain, with and without loads before subjective 4X4 SUSPENSION KIT CATALOGUE judgment is made on how Lovells could improve the performance of the vehicle in terms of ride height, handling, load carrying capacity (up to the manufacturers recommended GVM).
Suspension systems are then designed as a combination to ensure spring rates, suspension travel and handling compliment our shock absorber controls and other components. Performance including load capabilities verses ride comfort is also taken into consideration. Engineering samples are left on a vehicle for durability testing for periods of up to 12 months.

About Ride Height Options
Vehicle ride heights (Eye Brow Heights) are measured vertically from the center of the wheel hub to the edge of the guard. Vehicle ride heights are approximate only and can vary depending on:
- Age of vehicle
- Load Bearing Accessories (ie. bullbars, winches, extra fuel tanks, fridges, spare wheel carrier etc.)
Ride Height Options
- Standard Height (standard)
- Raised (40-50mm)
- Raised Heavy Duty (40-50mm)
- Raised Extra Heavy Duty (40-50mm)
Lovells Coil Springs
Designed as a superior replacement part for mass-produced O.E. (Original Equipment) coil springs. Lovells springs exceed original ratings by 10%- 50%, thus handling is dramatically improved and many ride height variations are available for most makes of vehicles. Lovells Coil Springs are manufactured to the highest standard from Australian made One Steel micro-alloy spring steel. Many Lovells Coil Springs are of a Progressive Rate design. This design enables spring to increase in spring rate when you need it and decrease when you don't; insuring the ultimate in handling and ride comfort.

Lovells Leaf Springs
Lovells offers a vast range of semi-elliptic leaf springs to satisfy popular ride height variations and load carrying capabilities. Lovells semi-elliptic springs have the outstanding characteristics of not only acting as a spring, to resiliently supporting the vehicle but also serve to position the axle, dampen vertical deflection and cushion both driving torque and braking reaction. Lovells leaf springs are manufactured to the highest standard from Australian made One Steel micro-alloy spring steel.

Lovells Heavy Duty Torsion Bars
Lovells heavy duty Torsion Bars are available as an upgrade to enhance the load-carrying ability of vehicles which have independent front ends. Lovells Torsion Bars are manufactured with larger diameter bar than original equipment which will increase spring rate and maintain ride height when the vehicle is fitted with load-bearing accessories (LBA) over the front. Eg. Bullbar or winch. Lovells Torsion Bars feature ‘upset’ forged ends which increase strength by improving the steel structure and rolled splines.

Lovells Shackles & Pins
Manufactured using the finest quality materials and case hardened to 0.2mm, to provide greater resistance to wear, thus increasing pin and bush life. Machined load bearing surfaces allow for increased dispersion and coverage of grease, which greatly improves performance and reduces shackle and pin deterioration. All Lovells shackles, plates and pins are manufactured to exceed Original Equipment specifications. The majority of Lovells shackles and pins are fully greaseable with easy accessible grease nipples and come complete with nuts & washers.
Lovells shackles and pins are covered by a 2 YEAR/ 40,000km WARRANTY.
Manufactured from high tensile premium quality cold formed rod, incorporating rolled threads to ensure material structure continuity and increased strength. Lovells Ubolts are coated with a rust preventative for long life and come complete with high tensile deep nuts and spring washers.
Lovells U-bolts are covered by a 2 YEAR/ 40,000km WARRANTY.
