Shocks at the Brisbane Truck Show

  • Posted on Thursday 13th, July 2017.

Not to be overlooked among the glitz of the trucks at the Brisbane Truck Show, shock absorber specialists have used the Show to share the latest advancements in the equipment's technology.

Powerdown featured the "Workshop". Powerdown staff members were on hand to provide information on shock absorbers, height control valves and suspension related issues such as ride heights, signs and results of shock wear, tightening bushes and testing high control valves.

One of the main items featured was an industry first from Powerdown, its new range of shock absorbers with a colour-coded recommended ride height gauge that indicates where the shock absorber stroke is operating.

"Visitors to the stand were excited and impressed by the innovation of the ride height sticker and were keen to get the shocks on their vehicles," said Powerdown General Manager, Mathew Gatgens.

Powerdown also displayed its low pressure gas shocks, which use a specialised measured low pressure gas injection process that provides further cooling properties, allowing the shock to operate cooler for longer and resist a loss of dampening performance.

Meanwhile, Monroe Australia took its place on the Mezzanine level of the Brisbane Truck Show to display its heavy-duty truck shock absorber range for the Aftermarket and Original Equipment Manufacturers, covering the key sectors of truck suspension requirements including cabin dampers, seat dampers and axle shock systems.
