The options for Defender suspension upgrade are myriad. A quick search online will reveal a plethora of often confusing options offering a variety of differing ride qualities and results.

Would you believe us if we said that we can now offer a conversion that will offer no compromise and tick every box? Sounds too good to be true? Well, allow us to introduce you to the TracTive Active Ride suspension conversion.

Using electronic damping technology you can either select from one of many preset modes which allow ride qualities anywhere from plush comfort to track stiffness, or you can programme in your own specific settings. Here you can choose pitch, roll, anti-dive, compression, rebound etc all from the touch of a button while in the comfort of the driving seat.

The phrase ‘game-changer’ is often over used but we really have never experienced an suspension application like this for Defender before.

TracTive Stand-alone electronically-adjustable shocks have been developed to implement high-tech semi-active suspension for your Defender.

The dampers are fitted with the TracTive patented DDA (Dynamic Damping Adjustment) valve. With its reaction time of 6 to 10 milliseconds from full soft to full hard, it is one of the fastest damping adjustments in the market. It demonstrates a tremendous stability and reproducibility, and is rapidly becoming THE technology chosen by high-end OE and racing teams. For every application the damping level and damping adjustment range is set-up from factory. It is possible to tune the damping level if required.

The system allows you to tune the suspension to almost any application by controlling roll, pitch and dive motions of the vehicle. The motion of the vehicle is monitored by a g-sensor integrated in the control unit, which is installed close to the center of gravity of the vehicle. The calibration is set up in the factory and can be updated if required.

The stand-alone control system comes with a touch screen display that allows the driver to make on-the-fly adjustments, save settings and even make driver-specific setups. The driver is able to adjust the damping of the front and rear axle in 5 levels, but also the suspension resistance to roll, and pitch/dive in 5 levels. The display can be centrally mounted for easy access. The kit includes a remote knob that can be centrally mounted for easy access.

This electronic suspension kit is valved specifically for Road and Track use, with a focus on sufficient comfort for optimal Road use while maintaining sport performance. Each kit is engineered for optimal performance and durability. The dampers are fitted with springs and have an infinite ride height adjustment either through the platforms on the shock bodies or through the separate adjusters.
