  • Suspension compression

    G'day everybody.

    Just got back from a weekend of camping & driving the tracks in Big Desert & Ngarkat park's & had a great time.

    Most of the tracks consist of soft sand, big dunes & many undulations or moguls between the dunes.
    It was very difficult to maintain any consistent speed due to the moguls.
    Quiet often the suspension would unload going over the top of an undulation & then compress on the way down & the bash plate would hit the next undulation.
    It wasn't quiet as bad as it sounds as the wheels were in ruts & we're only talking @ 20kphr.
    So my question is whether heavier springs in the front would assist in this not happening?

    I don't think it's the shock absorbers as there was no bouncing.

    I have a 2015 GX with steel bullbar, dual batteries & a 2" Ironman lift with 0-50kg springs which appeared to have dropped a bit after 2 1/2 years.

    They also sell heavier springs 50-110kg constant load which could be the answer?

    Sorry for the long winded question but I don't really understand suspension that much.
