Tough Dog Shock Absorbers for Toyota Landcruiser GQ & GU Patrol


Use the selectors above to choose your preferred shock absorbers and quantity required. The available options are:


41mm Bore Foam Cell

For all-round performance, you can't go past Tough Dog's award-winning Foam Cell shock absorbers. They're outstanding equipment on and off-road, no matter how often you're travelling.  

This shock absorber contains a micro-cellular foam insert which causes a substantial reduction in shock fade. This means you get longer-wearing and higher performing shock absorbers. 

The main reason for the 41mm foam cells unparalleled resistance to shock fade is its ability to eliminate the bubbles that form, i.e., cavitation and aeration. When a shock absorber is pushed to perform, the oil and gas in the outer chamber start to mix and form bubbles. When this happens, the viscosity of the oil is reduced and as the oil passes through the valve, the resistance is reduced and the shock absorber begins to underperform. The 41mm Foam Cell insert, with its trapped gas microcells, takes up that empty space and protects the shock absorber.

 

40mm Bore Foam Cell Adjustable

4WD's and 4WDrivers have different characteristics and driving styles. This is why the 40mm adjustable shock absorber is a popular choice. It gives you the ability to adjust your settings to suit the drive you want.

With 9 different stages of adjustment, the Tough Dog 40mm shock absorber gives you options to tune the ride according to your personal preference and purpose.

Equipped with market-leading Foam Cell technology, this shock absorber minimises aeration and cavitation to maximise the shocks ability to resist fade, and always perform reliably, even in the harshest conditions.

Tough Dog adjustable shocks are built tough for the tough Aussie outback.  It's ABS plastic dust shield serves as an external dust wiper seal and protects the shock absorber's insides from grit, which otherwise can lead to damage of the oil seals around the chrome rod.

When fully extended, the shock is at its most vulnerable to damage from side load. The internal bump stop and piston rod guide ensure the shock is supported at the extremes of its travel.

 

45mm Big Bore Foam Cell Adjustable

The Tough Dog 45mm bore in a 70mm casing is one mega shock absorber. These are the largest bore externally adjustable shocks available and they're miles ahead of anything else. 
 
In addition to the benefits of the 40mm adjustable as detailed above, the 45mm big bore adjustables are designed for big lift applications - up to six inches over factory in some vehicles.  The big bore shocks also have a DU bushing fitted internally to protect the seals from damage caused by side load at full extension.
 

53mm Ralph Big Bore

A whopping 53mm bore and 22mm chrome piston rod... The Tough Dog ‘Ralph’ shock carry's so much oil, they will always run cool, no matter how tough the terrain. 

The Ralph shock absorbers suit fully loaded off-road vehicles. These are the largest 4WD shock on the market. Not to mention, the toughest by a long-shot!
