IS YOUR Hilux getting a bit tired with its current shocks? Then revive it with a set of EFS XTR 40mm big bore shock absorbers and breathe life back into your humble steed.
The EFS XTR range of shocks sport a huge 40mm bore size to allow for an increase in fluid volume and prevent heat build-up and fade, especially when touring along corrugated roads.
The shocks also have DMC (Dynamic Motion Control technology), which changes valve forces depending on the velocity of the fluid travelling through the piston valve. When the oil speeds up through the valve, it slows the oil down to give you greater control in high-speed situations. But when the fluid is passing slowly through the piston valve during off-camber/off-road situations, it opens up to allow the fluid to easily pass through and allow for improved suspension flex.
All EFS shock absorbers are designed with DMC piston valves.
XTR 40mm front strut: $269.50 incl. GST (each)
XTR 40mm rear shock absorbers: $180.00 incl. GST (each)
XTR shock specs:
64mm external tube: greater oil capacity to keep the valve at a lower operating temperature.
Low-pressure nitrogen gas: helps prevent the oil from cavitating (foaming).
Long travel design: maximises wheel articulation.
40mm piston, twin tube construction: increased control of the spring during the rebound and compression cycles.
20mm hardened chromed piston rod: longer service life, and greater lateral strength.
2mm outer and inner wall thickness: greater durability and strength.
Dynamic Motion Control Valve: adjusts to different on- and off-road conditions. Vehicle and height-specific valving.
Mounting bushes: EFS use long-life polyurethane and rubber bushes, dependant on application.
