The ROADAFE STR and 4WD Shock Absorber ranges form integral parts of the ROADSAFE automotive aftermarket product range which is competitively priced and delivers quality to repairers and suspension specialists nationwide.
ROADSAFE STR covers replacement shock absorbers for passenger vehicles and daily drives, while the ROADSAFE 4WD is a performance enhancement for 4WDs and suited up to a 50mm lift. ROADSAFE STR and 4WD shock absorbers are locally tested to specifically suit Australian conditions.


All ROADSAFE product testing is conducted in a dedicated research-and-design facility located in Victoria, where shock absorbers are assessed using a very stringent testing process which includes visual inspections, shock dyno tests, vehicle fitment and on-road testing.
Its quality is backed by a comprehensive three-year/100,000km warranty. ROADSAFE STR replacement shock absorbers are nitrogen-gas charged to provide precise and consistent valving. They also feature high-quality, hard-chromed finished shafts to eliminate wear, chipping and drag. Finely tuned valving to suit each specific vehicle application ensures improved vehicle comfort, control, steering response and reduced emergency-stopping distances.

High-quality piston-rod guides ensure smooth operation with superior strength against side loading. Each ROADSAFE STR Shock Absorber pressure tube is seamless, ensuring they are 100 per cent cylindrical, with high-burst pressures, resulting in consistent performance and reliability.

High-quality rubber mounting bushings reduce noise, vibrations and harshness, while also ensuring stable mounting. The ROADSAFE STR Shock Absorber range is available in sealed-strut, telescopic and spring-seated designs as determined by vehicle specifications, ensuring repairers have easy access to an extensive range of shock absorbers to suit a vast array of vehicle makes and models.


ROADSAFE 4WD Shock Absorbers feature a larger surface area for optimum heat dissipation and excellent dampening-control properties. The ROADSAFE 4WD big bore design ensures greater oil capacity and temperature control under extreme four-wheel-driving conditions. Additional features include a large-diameter, high-quality, chrome-finished shaft with an internal rod stop. These shock absorbers also feature a large surface piston-rod guide to support increased side load and heavy bump impacts.

The ROADSAFE 4WD Shock Absorber range also benefits from high-quality upper-shaft seals to handle the demands of rugged terrain, along with heavy-duty, double-welded mounting points for increased stability and strength. ROADSAFE 4WD direct-fit shock absorbers are available in nitrogen-gas (up to 35mm bore) and foam-cell (up to 40mm bore) configurations to ensure reduced fade, aeration and cavitation control.

The ROADSAFE STR and 4WD replacement shock absorber range is available from Burson Auto Parts and other quality independent auto parts resellers nationwide.
