G'day! How are you going?

This newsletter is dedicated to the massive range of Ironman 4x4 products. Whether it's shocks, a suspension kit, camping gear, bullbars, driving lights or recovery equipment, Ironman 4x4 manufactures high-quality, high-performance products that are also excellent value-for-money.

 SHOCK ABSORBER LINE UP

Ironman shocks

Specs: NITRO GAS

Highly versatile performance upgrade from original shock absorbers
 

NITROGEN GAS PRESSURIZED

Low pressure nitrogen gas dramatically reduces the likelihood of oil aeration and shock fade.

SUSPENSION KITS

NP300 NAVARA

SUSPENSION KIT

Ironman 4×4 offers an extensive range of integrated suspension kits. These designs have evolved over their 50 years of suspension experience!


LEAF SPRING FEATURES:

INTER-LEAF LINERS:

Used in some applications to lower friction between leaves. Reduces noise and improves comfort.

LINED BOLT CLAMPS:

All Ironman leaf springs feature bolted guide clamps for greater flex. The addition of anti-friction liners ensures noise-free smooth operation.

SHOT-PEENED:

Manipulates tension side of material to reduce stress. This greatly enhances spring life.

DIAMOND-CUT LEAFS:

Distributes load at the leaf tip and reduces inter-leaf friction.

MILITARY WRAP:

Where applicable, an additional wrap around the leaf eye protects from failure in the case of damage.

Ironman leaf springs


Ironman 4x4 Coil Springs are available in a wide range of load ratings to maintain optimum ride height.


COIL SPRING FEATURES:

COLD-COILED:

CNC cold-coiling ensures perfect consistency and accuracy. Less heat during manufacture maintains material properties resulting in longer life.

BAR-PEELED:

Bar-peeling is the process of machining the material to an exact size before cooling. This ensures the diametre remains constant and free of flaws along its entire length.

SHOT-PEENDED:

Manipulates material surface tension to reduce stress. This greatly enhances spring life.

TRIPPLE-SCRAGGED:

Each coil is fully compressed to a solid state (3) x times to minimise coil setting.

PROGRESSIVE & LINEAR RATES:

Used in accordance to original vehicle manufacturers preference. Progressive springs increase rate as the spring compresses. Linear springs maintain a consistent rate throughout its range.

POWDER-COATED:

All springs are electro-static poweder-coated for a durable finish.

TORSION BARS:

UP-SET FORGED ENDS:

Stronger than machining alone. Forging manipulates steel grain for superior strength and durability.

PREMIUM MICRO-ALLOY STEEL:

Exceeds OEM steel grade for ultra long life and less sag.

INCREASED BAR DIAMETER:

Higher spring rate better supports added accessories and balances front and rear suspension performance.

X-RAY EXAMINED:

Each and every Ironman torsion bar is X-ray tested to eliminate risk of breakage due to material flaw.

DIRECTIONAL PRE-SETTING:

Ironman torsion bars are rotationally pre-set in their direction of installation to reduce spring settling. Each bar is marked for left or right fitment.

APPLICATION TIPS:

The correct selection of these components (the application) is important in achieving the best suspension performance.

Each vehicle must be considered individually as many variables can influence the end result.

At
4WD1.com we are always glad to help. Phone us at 1300 004 931 to discuss your requirements.

One of the best ways to convey exactly what you need is to ask yourself (and tell us):  Why you want to change, or modify, the suspension you already have...


Please include:

  • The full name and year model of your vehicle.

  • Your vehicle's setup (load-bearing accessories fitted ie: steel bar, winch, rear step bar, extra fuel tanks etc, or if other suspension systems have been fitted.)

  • Your usage or intended usage. (ie: Mainly around town and unladen, or plus 2 big trips per year. Heavy tool cartage 5 days a week. Towing, ball weight of 80kgs etc.)

  • Your personal expectations of the way you feel the suspension solution should perform. ie "ride quality is first priority......"


These details take extra time and effort. We appreciate this, and hope that you feel the response to your email or phone call is of equal quality.

LOAD PLUS:

ironman loadplus kit


Ironman 4x4 Load Plus Helper Springs are a great addition to many leaf sprung vehicles carrying loads. Load Plus provides a cost effective way to quickly and easily improve the load carrying characteristics of your vehicle. Perfect for trade vehicles, couriers or even the family wagon. Load Plus allows users to progressively adjust the leaf springs of their vehicle to better manage heavy loads.

If you have an unladen vehicle, leave the load plus at a lower setting. If you add weight (up to the vehicle GVM) you can then  progressively tension the Load Plus to maintain your vehicles driving characteristics and ride height by progressively stiffening the suspension.

Load Plus is easy to fit and only requires basic tools for installation.

FIRST TO MARKET:

Ironman 4x4 Ford Everest


Originally established in Melbourne (1958) as a suspension parts manufacturer called Jacob Spring Works. In 1982 the company took shape as JSW Parts, to design and supply leaf and coil springs for cars, trucks, buses and 4×4 vehicles. JSW Parts soon became well known as a manufacturer and supplier of suspension parts all around the world.

Today, one of Ironman's international warehouse and offices is located in Thailand. This provides the opportunity for Ironman to access vehicle models bound for Australia ahead of time. Usually when a new model vehicle is released in Australian, Ironman 4x4 already has an extensively researched and developed suspension system or front-end protection product ready to go.

WARRANTY:

Most Ironman 4x4 suspension products are backed by a 3-YEAR/60,000km Iron Clad warranty.

That's a fair-dinkum warranty and represents real confidence for your peace of mind!

FRIDGE/FREEZER:

Ironman fridge freezer


4WD Action Magazine (No. 228) featured a massive Fridge/Freezer comparison of (six) of the most popular 12V models. With 500 hours of gruelling testing, including outback torture-testing
PLUS the work of a group of independent accredited engineers, the Ironman Ice Cube unit performed streaks ahead of every model in the cooling capacity test, AND in the final verdict was awarded 2nd place overall.

Ironman fridge freezer


We’ve always been fans of the Ironman Ice Cube Fridge (we’ve got them ourselves!). It’s compact, yet with generous and practical internal space, and it’s easy to carry. It also has one of the best warranties in the industry >
That’s 5-years on the German-engineered compressor and 3-years components warranty!

One other thing we really like about the Ironman Ice Cube is the available matching insulated cover/transit bag. It’s super tough (kick it about) and fits like a glove while allowing fast access to all outlets. It provides extra protection and cooling efficiency and is equally easy to carry the fridge around.
