Close-up of armoured suspension installed in armoured vehicle

Vehicle suspension has two primary purposes:

  1. Assist the car's ability to hold and handle the road effectively.
  2. Allow the driver and passenger to be transported as smoothly as possible, with minimal road noise.

It is possible that the suspension of the vehicle will be upgraded when a vehicle is armoured. However, due to our light-weight armour and modern vehicles having excellent suspension, it is entirely possible that no further modification is needed! The extent to which your vehicle’s suspension is modified will depend on the size of the vehicle, the quality of existing suspension, and the environment in which it will be driven.

Although it varies with the requested level of armour, we generally recommend that our clients begin the armouring process by selecting a vehicle with significant pulling power, a competent payload capacity, and suited to the environment in which it will be used.

When required, our upgraded suspension allows the car to hold and handle the road most effectively, facilitates a smooth and comfortable journey, and bears the additional weight of ballistic glass and other armour.

If you have any questions about how your vehicle will be armoured or what level of protection you need, contact us and we'll be happy to assist you.
