CalOffroad: World-Class Suspension for 4x4s
6 Jul, 2023
Since becoming an official member of the CoolDrive Auto Parts family in 2022, leading suspension company CalOffroad is going from strength to strength under the ongoing vision and direction of its founder Cal Goodman.
CalOffroad offers a comprehensive range of offroad suspension products, including lift kits and accessories, and under the CoolDrive banner, this range is expanding to now cover the majority of the most popular four-wheel-drives and SUVs in Australia.
“For over 30 years, CalOffroad has been developing and producing the most advanced, highest-performing 4x4 and offroad suspension systems available in Australia, and anywhere in the world,” said Cal Goodman.
“My experience with offroad suspension and vehicle development began in the 1980s when I was racing snowboards and living in the United States, where I spent many years at the forefront of offroad suspension and vehicle development.
“During this time overseas, I identified that the Australian market was well behind in style and overall design of offroad suspension products, and I knew I could make a difference to outdoor enthusiasts here – and so began the CalOffroad journey.
“One of the biggest differentiating factors of CalOffroad products occurs during the development phase, where our products are tested and pushed to the limits at our own private offroad testing areas, so we can identify when they perform best and where they can improve.
“CalOffroad also has a history of design and manufacture for military applications using high grade aerospace technology and materials, which allows us to develop components that we can use in everyday vehicle applications.”
Providing the ultimate off-road ride over any terrain – from potholes and corrugations to long stretches of gravel or dirt at speed, CalOffroad shock absorbers are designed for the harshest Australian conditions.
Products are available for the most popular offroad vehicles in Australia including the Ford Ranger, Holden Colorado, Isuzu D-MAX and MUX, Jeep Wrangler, Mazda BT-50, Mitsubishi Triton, Nissan Navara and Patrol, Toyota HiLux and LandCruiser and the Volkswagen Amarok.
CalOffroad is also an Australian importer for a number of high-end offroad suspension brands and is a direct importer of leading suspension brand Fox Shocks as well as a major distributor for Bilstein.
A standout product range from CalOffroad is its Platinum Series Bilstein shock absorbers, which have been developed from many years of testing and working closely with Bilstein and Toyota Racing Development engineers.
Designed with the latest technology and specific fitments, the CalOffroad Platinum Series Bilsteins are one of the world’s most advanced shocks for off-road reliability, whether touring, daily driving or racing.
The CalOffroad Platinum Series Bilsteins offer more height adjustability, race and performance style valving, specific body coatings for corrosion protection and greater lift heights.
“At CalOffroad, we want our customers to be able to purchase our quality suspension products for any vehicle, whether it be an entry-level shock absorber right through to high-end components, all while benefitting from market-leading quality and service from a name they can trust,” continued Cal.
“CalOffroad is a very personal brand, and we make sure our customers know they are receiving something special. Our customers buy our products not only because of the high quality, but to be a part of the CalOffroad lifestyle. We appreciate this and still share the excitement every customer has as they build their dream car.”
