The payload capacity of many 4X4 vehicles today is pretty limited. Toss in some basic optional gear and a couple of mates, and you're already pushing the vehicle close to its legal max weight (GVM). Now, throw in long-range fuel tanks, bull bars, winches, side steps, roof racks, recovery gear, and a load of camping kit or a custom industrial body, and you’re definitely tipping past the Original Equipment allowable Gross Vehicle Mass. OEM suspension is all about comfort, often at the cost of load carrying and performance. But Lovells suspension? It’s built different. Designed with matched components, Lovells kits offer the ultimate in performance, load carrying, and handling. Lovells GVM Upgrade suspension kits are fully track-tested alongside a Certified Automotive Engineering Signatory over several days to ensure max stability, braking performance, ADR (Australian Design Rules) compliance, and operator comfort. All test data and documentation are then sent off to the DEPARTMENT of INFRASTRUCTURE, TRANSPORT, REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT, and LOCAL GOVERNMENT for a thorough analysis.
