Dobinsons Alignment and Extension Components
Fitting raised suspension to a vehicle can alter the vehicle’s suspension, brakes and steering geometry. In some cases, additional suspension components are needed to ensure vehicle handling and performance are not compromised. Dobinsons™ has a range of alignment and suspension components to complement the company’s spring and suspension offerings. Castor correction is required for lifts above 50mm, and recommended for lifts below 50mm.

With domestic manufacturing facilities, Dobinsons™ are able to manufacture smaller quantities so you get the best coil spring for your application rather than “one size fits all”. Dobinsons™ engineers use the latest coil spring design programs to ensure each spring meets the design requirements and achieves the maximum working life. These advanced design programs are critical when designing variable/progressive rate springs to ensure laden and unladen spring rates are correct for optimal ride comfort and handling.

Dobinsons Polyurethane Bushes
Dobinsons™ polyurethane bushes are manufactured from the highest quality raw materials and have been designed to suit both Dobinsons™ leaf springs and the original vehicle leaf springs. Dobinsons polyurethane bushes feature unique internal diamond grease traps to maximise bush and shackle life. Dobinsons polyurethane leaf spring bushes provide a smooth comfortable ride and when combined with Dobinsons™ 4WD greaseable shackles offer a superior service life compared to the original vehicle bushes.
Dobinsons Shackles and Pins
Dobinsons™ 4WD shackles and pins have been designed and manufactured to maximise the life of the polyurethane bushes and shackles. Incorporating a recessed twin-hole greaseable design. The design ensures even grease distribution on both halves of the polyurethane bush. Greasing polyurethane reduces friction, wear and squeaking, and also reduces the likelihood of corrosion on the shackle pins. Dobinsons™ 4WD shackles and pins have a heavy-duty design with simple maintenance through external grease nipples.
Dobinsons Shock Absorber Struts
Dobinsons™ 4x4 shock absorbers are designed, developed, and tested in Australia to perform in the harshest conditions, blistering heat, corrugations, and subzero temperatures. Dobinsons™ Twin Tube Nitrogen Gas charged shock absorbers are made from the highest quality external and internal parts sourced worldwide. They provide significantly higher performance than standard shock absorbers. Originally equipped shock absorbers are prone to “shock fade” when exposed to the heavy loading and harsh conditions that 4x4 owners love to put them through.
Dobinsons Steering Dampers
Advance Accessories stock Dobinsons™ 4WD heavy duty steering dampers featuring a larger body size for smoother, cooler operation. 50/50 valving heavy duty steering dampers ensure comfortable, controlled steering operation especially on vehicles fitted with raised suspension, additional accessories or larger tyres.
Dobinsons Torsion Bars
Dobinsons™ 4WD torsion bars are manufactured from high quality micro alloy steel with a thicker bar diameter than the original vehicle torsion bars to improve performance when accessories are fitted. Fitting vehicles with additional accessories like steel bullbars, winches, and dual battery kits, can dramatically increase the weight placed on the torsion bars. The original torsion bars may not withstand the additional weight and be prone to sagging leading to poor handling and performance. Dobinsons™ 4WD torsion bars feature an increased spring rate (thicker bar diameter) to better handle the additional weight to provide improved handling, ride height, and off-road performance.
