The Tough Dog EXT steering damper is our affordable, heavy duty replacement damper. Designed for mild applications as a replacement damper, this damper will give you control and feeling back in your steering set up.
With a 35mm internal bore and our Foam Cell insert to fight against fade, this damper is the perfect companion for anyone looking to gain a new lease on life from their steering.
Sir Isaac Newton might never have owned a 4WD, but he certainly knew what he was on about when he wrote his 3rd law of physics. “For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.” Every time something fights your steering, the Return To Centre damper is right there with the equal and opposite reaction to keep you on track.
Tough Dog steering stabilisers are the only award-winning RTC steering damper on the market. We paved the way for return to centre dampers in Australia. Using the return to centre principle, the coil over spring forces the steering damper to return to the neutral position, helping to eliminate steering wheel kick on uneven surfaces.
The return to centre damper aids drivers in their fight with the steering wheel over rough terrain, taming the erratic steering movement without compromising overall steering feel and response.
XHD R.T.C Damper
This damper is designed for those extreme use applications like vehicles with oversized tyres and large suspension lifts. Taking the principle of the return to centre damper to the extreme, this damper certainly packs a punch when it comes to straightening out your steering.
When a vehicle is fitted with a suspension lift greater than 100mm, the geometry of the front arms, and the length of travel required from the damper will change. Our XHD dampers come will with all the brackets required to mount the damper as well as instructions on correct configuration of the coil and collar arrangement.
Our award winning ‘SV’ adjustable damper is the only one of its kind to offer users the ability to adjust the damping force to suite driving style and vehicle requirements. It is especially effective on vehicles with oversized wheels, or increased wheel track that experience steering shimmy.
The damping force is adjusted until the wheel shake is ‘tuned’ out of the equation. With the SV unit, a change in steering feel is just a dial turn away.
SV dampers are available for up to 50mm suspension lift, and for some vehicles up to 150mm of lift.
