Lovells Gas Legend Shock Absorbers

3 Year / 70,000km Warranty


Manufactured to the highest standard from Australian supplied valves, shafts and associated parts.


GAS LEGEND Twin-Tube Long Travel Performance Gas Charged Struts and Shock Absorbers are developed in Australia for the 4x4 enthusiast and purist who requires an exceptional responsive and robust suspension system. Designed to match Lovells performance Raised and Raised Heavy Duty coil/leaf springs and spring rates, Lovells Gas Legend shock absorber controls are tailor made for each specific vehicle application. With new and improved technology derived from years of research and development, Lovells Gas Legend shock absorbers and complete suspension lift kits offer many unique features for 4x4 vehicles, not often seen in after-market suspension systems:


Lovells 4X4 Shock Absorbers feature:

  • 40mm bore and huge 60mm expanded body design provides up to twice the oil capacity of Original Equipment shock absorbers to maximise fade resistance, run cooler and allow faster reaction time to
    road changes.

  • Teflon banded steel pistons and nylon mechanical top out stops.

  • Piston retainer nuts mechanically peened to stop failure at high temperature.

  • Multi stage valving system to allow a progressive dampening effect from slow to fast piston velocity thus
    automatically adjusting to all conditions.

  • Shafts are manufactured from tough 20mm hardened chrome, precision engineered to withstand the harshest of environments, while reducing friction and wear.

  • Twin piston rod seals are high quality, high temperature multi-lip design to again reduce friction and provide
    longer life.

  • Robust 1.5mm thick external tube walls and 2mm thick internal walls.

  • Gas charged with low pressure nitrogen gas to maximise fade resistance under extreme conditions
    without harshness while providing more responsive control.

  • All eyes and pin mounts are fully welded for extra strength and long life.

  • Majority of the range are long travel design to allow fitment with all Lovells spring part numbers and ensures maximum wheel contact at all times.


Lovells Gas Legend struts and shock absorbers are covered by a 3 YEAR/70,000km WARRANTY


Value added extras

  • Struts come complete with neoprene bellows boots/dust shields.

  • Shock absorbers come complete with neoprene shrouds.

  • Struts and shock absorbers come complete with mounting hardware.

  • Some struts and shock absorbers come with re movable spring platform spacers for incremental height adjustment.




Lovells offer complete Raised heavy duty suspension kits for all popular 4x4 vehicles, with properly 'matched' components to ensure vehicle handling and performance characteristics are paramount. This includes a choice of several raised and raised heavy duty ride heights and shock absorber combinations to satisfy the most discerning 4x4 enthusiast.


To achieve this, Lovells initially carry out an evaluation of a vehicle via road testing, component analysis and performance and specification examination. Road testing involves driving a vehicle on several types of road surfaces to assess load carrying, handling, braking performance and ground clearance, before subjective judgment is made on how Lovells could improve all of these attributes.


The performance of the vehicle in terms of ride height, handling, alignment, comfort for road use and load carrying capabilities are all taken into consideration.


Full suspension systems are then designed as a combination to ensure spring rates, shock absorber controls, suspension travel, bushing and alignment components all compliment each other to give the ultimate performance kit for the vehicle in question.


Engineering samples are left on a vehicle for durability testing for periods of up to 12 months.
