What We Can Do

Redlands 4WD are an independent business specialising in 4x4 accessories and suspension. Since 1996, we have been customising 4x4 suspensions to suit individual customers' needs. Whether it be a tourer, tow vehicle, work ute, week-end warrior or hard core off-road, Redlands 4WD have the experience to set up your 4x4. 

As a distributor for EFS Suspension, Dobinsons, Rancho, Airbag Man, Superior Engineering, Tough Dog, Poly Air and Roadsafe, we can find the right combination for you. We welcome and encourage you to contact us to discuss your suspension requirements.


A 4WD suspension is made up of quite a number of components designed to insulate the vehicle cabin (and hence the occupants) from the harshness of the surface you are travelling on, whilst still providing feedback to the driver to enable the correct response in braking, steering and handling.

The two main components of any suspension are the 'springs and shocks'. Essentially springs (coil or leaf), torsion bars and airbags are designed to hold and control the weight of the 4WD and are the true absorbers of shock. Without springs, you would not require shock absorbers (or dampeners), and you would feel every pebble on the road that the tyres came in contact with. Shock absorbers and struts or dampeners are really designed to arrest the bounce that occurs when the springs absorb the sudden movement of the wheels and tyres, thereby keeping the tyre in better contact with the road surface and providing improved safety, handling and braking.

Then there are many other components consisting of arms and rods with bushes (once again to absorb harshness), shackles, u-bolts, bushes, strengthening brackets, lengthening brackets for swaybars and brake bias valves, etc. These may or may not be needed for your suspension upgrade. We only list Ironman suspension kits on our site as their kit price is the same regardless of the spring rate in the kit.  

It is really best to talk to Peter or Ben at Redlands 4WD to obtain a suspension that suits your needs. We don't work with terms like 'heavy duty' or 'extra heavy duty' - we will ask a lot of questions regarding the constant weight you have in addition to factory fitted items, as well as the occasional load and the use of the 4WD. We welcome and encourage you to contact us to discuss your suspension requirements.

From trucks and buses to vans and 4WDs, they create air suspension kits for all kinds of vehicles. See our full applications list or contact us for help if you have a new design requirement.


Firestone Ride-Rite airbags are heavy duty airbags that fit between a vehicle’s chassis and the axle. These products are easy to install and adjust as needed for varying loads, and they offer improved handling and steering capabilities, decreased tyre wear and correct vehicle height. Whether you have a light truck, van, ute, 4WD, SUV, caravan or motorhome, the Ride-Rite airbags will provide the additional support you need for leaf suspension.

Coil Rite

Firestone Coil-Rite airbags fit into coil springs for additional support for front and rear coil springs. When you’re carrying an uneven or heavy load, Coil-Rite airbags will maintain the levels of the vehicle and maximise safety and stability. If you’re concerned with bottoming out and suspension fatigue, then Coil-Rite airbags are the answer. Each product is made from durable polyurethane for years of use, perfect for levelling up when towing heavy loads and vehicles like trailers, boats and caravans.

EFS Multi Leaf Springs were designed to give each driver a more comfortable and safe ride. They’re made from Japanese grade SUP9 & SUP9A alloyed carbon spring steel, and they are available in 30mm to 80mm raised heights with a slight increase in spring rates over the original equipment. Additionally, these leaf springs offer various features to reduce friction, noise, pressure and stress. Read more about EFS leaf springs by visiting their website
