West Coast Suspension is now authorised under Federal approval number 47899 to supply and fit a GVM suspension upgrade for the Ford PX Ranger to 3,500 kilograms GVM. This enables the operator to legally carry 300 kg’s over the factory stipulated GVM.
This kit has been ESC tested by Bosch Australia and complies with the ADR 35-05 “Sine with Dwell” requirements and fully certified under RVCS (Road Vehicle Certification System) by the federal Dept. of Infrastructure and Regional Development.
Each GVM suspension upgrade is issued with a silver modification compliance plate fitted next to the OEM compliance plate, stating vehicle particulars and approval number issued as Second Stage Manufacture. The suspension modification and fixing of the silver modification plate must be done prior to any other modifications and must be done prior to the vehicle being licensed.
For vehicles that have already been road registered, the process varies from state to state. The vehicle may be required to be inspected by an authorised Automotive Engineer in that state to be issued with a compliance certificate.
Suspension kit consists of:
|2 Front coil springs||2 Swinging shackles|
|2 Rear leaf springs||2 Fixed pins|
|4 Heavy duty shock absorbers||1 Centre bearing spacer|
|4 U-Bolts||1 Silver SSM Compliance plate|
|1 Shackle bush kit||1 GVM tyre placard|
Please be aware that these kits must be fitted by a DOTARS approved manufacturing facility.
All relevant application and approval forms for vehicle particulars will be available from West Coast Suspension staff at time of purchase.
