Terrafirma offers the largest and most comprehensive range of shock absorbers, coil springs, mounting hardware and suspension kits for Land Rover vehicles in the market place. The extensive range of shocks specifically for Land Rover vehicles includes the All Terrain, Pro Sport, Extreme LT, Big Bore Expedition, Commercial HD and Remote Reservoir as well as the universal fit Mega Sport, Air Shocks and hydraulic bump stops which require special Terrafirma or custom made mounting kits.
The purpose of a vehicle's suspension is to support the weight of the vehicle and absorb impacts, maximising the tire's contact with the ground while maintaining stability and control. When using a Land Rover off road the limits of the standard suspension are quickly realised when the lack of wheel travel affects traction and ultimately the vehicle's ability to maintain forward motion. The added benefits of long travel suspension are exponential. Taller suspension allows larger tyres to be fitted as well as allowing greater suspension movement. Raising the suspension will also increase approach, departure and ramp over angles allowing your Land Rover to overcome larger obstacles.
The majority of Terrafirma Coil Springs are designed to lift the vehicle by approximately 2” (50mm).This is the optimum increase in ride height before the mechanical limitations of the suspension design become an issue requiring further modifications. Safety has to be a consideration, raising the centre of gravity too high increases the risk of a roll over. A vehicle lifted by 2” (50mm) using correctly matched Terrafirma Coil Springs and shocks will also improve on road handling, comfort and stability from the original set up.
There is one thing that is paramount to safe and successful off road driving...... Traction! keeping the tyres in contact with the ground is essential to maintain forward motion. While Land Rover can claim class leading off road suspension straight out of the box even keen amateur off roaders quickly reach the limits of wheel travel and lose momentum with wheels in the air fighting for grip. Terrafirma Suspension Hardware is a range of chassis and suspension accessories designed to considerably improve your off road driving experience. Increasing wheel travel or axle articulation with stability and balance is the key moving forward in really rough terrain.
Terrafirma products can be bought individually to enable total customisation of the suspension system allowing you to upgrade and tune the suspension ride height, load carrying and wheel travel to meet your exact requirements. However in some cases popular items can be combined to make an ideal upgrade package. It is important when selecting a spring and shock kit that it suits the weight of the vehicle and the load that is to be carried. If you require different load springs front and rear the individual components must be selected from their respective ranges.
