Our SMART System

Properly increasing your vehicle’s gross vehicle mass (GVM) is notoriously difficult. Throughout our 40+ years in the Australian automotive industry, we’ve noticed that most suspension upgrades tend to be compromises rather than actual solutions. When it comes to increasing your vehicle’s load potential, most typical upgrades provide it at the expense of safety and performance. To us, this is simply unacceptable.

That’s why we set out to design and create our own line of GVM upgrades and shock absorbers. From the beginning, we were committed to producing a suspension upgrade that was different from the rest of the market. And that’s exactly what we created, thanks to Durashock’s SMART System leading our design. SMARTS stands for:

  • Superior Load Carrying
  • Minimal Heigh Increase
  • All Round Comfort
  • Real Safety Benefits
  • Tested & Federally Certified

Suspension Upgrade - FAQs

Safely increasing your Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) is a difficult task. Many existing upgrade kits come with compromises that may prove dangerous in the wrong circumstances. Driveline’s SMART GVM Upgrade kits solve this problem by providing a safe, effective and reliable system for increasing your load capacity without affecting vehicle performance or safety.
Depending on your make and model, our SMART GVM kits could provide as much as a hefty 600kg increase in load capacity while staying within legal limits.
Increasing your GVM with a minimal increase to your suspension height improves the handling, performance and safety of your vehicle. Our SMART GVM kits can greatly increase your carrying capacity with just a 25-50mm height increase for most makes and models.
Many kits increase GVM by using uncomfortably stiff springs or hard suspension components. Our Durashock GVM Upgrade kits are designed to increase your vehicle capacity without sacrificing a smooth and friendly ride, even when the car is unladen.
A suspension replacement can improve your load capacity without increasing the height or ruining the ride, and this equals real safety benefits. Modified suspension changes the way your vehicle handles, and high lifts or stiff springs can create serious health and safety risks. Durashock SMART GVM Upgrades are designed to reduce these factors, making our kits some of the safest on the market.
