RIDEMASTER® Leaf Suspension
Ridemaster® Leaf Suspensions: traditional leaf springs which have been around for decades, and are simple, economical and reliable.
Beam axles have passed the test of time and are generally a good workhorse. In conjunction with the beam axle you need a good well designed and engineered suspension system to support and protect the load being carried as well as to keep the tracking of the trailer behind the tow vehicle in line under all conditions.
The RIDEMASTER® range comes in Single axle and Tandem axle configurations. The Single axle variants utilize either a 850mm Eye to Eye spring or a 710mm Eye to Eye spring depending on the application. Tandem axle systems use the 710mm Eye to Eye springs only. Tandem axle systems have two (2) mounting options that allow for different ride heights depending on the end users requirements.
The RIDEMASTER® structural hanger and shouldered shackle bolt suspension system is manufactured using many robot welded parts for consistency of finished products to design tolerances. RIDEMASTER® suspensions use 60mm wide x 8mm thick spring leafs which provide up to 50% more strength then other conventional leaf springs. The Leaf Springs used are manufactured to Vehicle Components own specifications in line with design criteria to SAE standards
Proudly designed, manufactured and tested in Australia by Vehicle Components.

"I have had a couple of different trailing arm suspensions over the years, and also a suspension on a bigger off-road caravan, but don’t know what it is about your suspension....it just feels so smooth, and when the going gets tough, it rides everything without stress and really looks after what’s on top." - Clint
"The real reason for my email is to give feedback about the guys from your Servicing Department. What a pleasure it was to deal with them last Wednesday & you should be proud & thankfull to have such valuable & dedicated people working for your organisation. Servicing of the brakes was long overdue so it turned out to be a more complex job than a standard brake/bearing service. At all times Kieren & Kelvin clearly explained what was required to fix the faults & bring our rig back to good working order. The young fellow whose name I have forgotten was also very pleasant & helpful. When looking for a service providor who sells &/or uses quality materials & who employs people I feel confident in, whom I can trust & who have the skills & knowledge to do an excellent job. My impression is that Vehicle Components is one such organisation & again I would like to thank Kieren, Kelvin & the younger guy (sorry I forgot your name) for their professional attitude & excellent service delivery" - Greg & Diane
