Rolling with the best brands in Australia, we make sure your ride’s backbone is as rugged as the adventures you tackle. Ensuring every trip is smooth sailing and your 4WD is ready for the long haul!


Elevate Your Ride with Strut-tacular Suspensions & GVM Upgrades!

Elevate your 4WD or Caravan's performance and durability with our comprehensive GVM and suspension upgrades. At BAW Automotive, we recognise the significance of ensuring your vehicle operates within its legal limits, not just for compliance but for optimal safety, warranty assurance, and insurance validity. Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) is more than just a term; it represents the maximum weight your fully-loaded vehicle can bear, as specified by its manufacturer. This encompasses everything — from the vehicle's inherent weight, the fuel it carries, to passengers and vital 4x4 accessories. And if you're someone who's frequently towing, remember, GVM also accounts for elements like tow hitches and the weight transferred from your trailer or caravan.

However, understanding your GVM is just the first step. It's essential to ensure your vehicle remains within these prescribed limits, not only to avoid potential legal complications but more crucially, to guarantee the safety of all onboard. Any vehicle exceeding its GVM is considered unroadworthy, and in the event of an accident, it might not meet insurance stipulations. Safety isn't a gamble, and with us, it's a guarantee. But what if your adventures demand more? That’s where our GVM upgrade services come into play. With a BAW-approved GVM upgrade, you can legally and efficiently bolster your vehicle's load capacity without compromising on its performance or maneuverability. And if you're looking to enhance that ride quality further, our suspension upgrades ensure every journey is smoother, more stable, and in sync with the terrains you love exploring.

Our dedication to providing unmatched quality extends to our collaborations. We are proud associates of some of the industry's leading brands, a testament to our commitment to source and deliver only the finest solutions to our clientele.

At BAW Automotive, every upgrade isn’t just a service; it's a commitment to excellence, precision, and an unwavering focus on your needs. Navigate through our offerings and let's gear up your 4WD for journeys that are safer, longer, and undeniably epic.
