  • Is vehicle is having any front axle constant loads (i.e. bullbar or winch). If so, it is suggested to be fitted whilst we are carrying out the upgrade (or prior to). This is so the front spring platform height can be adjusted correctly. Altering the spring platform height at a later date can be costly.

Financials

  • $1,000.00 deposit

Finer details

  • Is old suspension to be disposed of? There is no resale value on OEM suspension and it cannot be used as spare parts as it will deem your upgrade as non-compliant until GVM certified parts are re-fitted. If your old suspension has already been lifted but is more than 3 years old or 60,000km you likely will find it difficult to get a worthwhile resale
  • Are there any future plans for additional front axle constant loads (i.e. bullbar or winch). It is suggested to be fitted whilst we are carrying out the upgrade (or prior to). This is so the front spring platform height can be adjusted correctly. Altering the spring platform height at a later date can be costly. This is not relevant if vehicle already has bullbar / winch, in which case answer not applicable.
  • Does vehicle have airbags fitted to the rear axle? Depending on vehicle current ride height these may be too short & not re-usable. If yes, are we to replace, reuse or decomission?
    • If vehicle does not have a true 2 inch lift already fitted the airbags will be too short and not salvagable
    • Warning: if airbags are over 18months old they are not suggested to be re-used as the airbag will have moulded into shape with the old coil spring which can result in leakage. In some examples the airbags are impossible to remove from the old coil due to swelling. This applies to both light duty and heavy duty airbags. There is no warranty provided for leakage post-recycling as per these age suggestions.
    • If decommissioning the OEM bump stops will need to be refitted
    • Always check with your insurance company as some do not cover a vehicle at all that has bellows airbags fitted
  • Provide in detail how you heard or found out about BAM Garage

  • After first suspension retension the ubolts are to be tensioned again within another 1,000km-1,500km. (0.5 hour labour charge applies).
