AEV’s DualSport Suspension Systems have taken off-road suspension engineering to the next level. At AEV, suspension development is about more than just adding lift height, articulation, or flashy-looking components. It’s about bringing OE-level suspension engineering to the aftermarket to create a true do-anything “dualsport” suspension – one that is both extremely capable off-road, while offering unparalleled on-road performance and handling.
To achieve this, AEV relied on factory engineering methodology. We started with the JK’s control-arms, track-arms and steering. The geometry of each component was optimized to accommodate the new lifted posture of the JK. It may surprise people to learn that proper geometry is where AEV’s Dualsport Suspensions get much of their tremendous cornering and braking characteristics. The fact is, when the geometry is right, the springs and shocks don’t have to compensate for poor performance in these areas.
Once the geometry was correct, we turned our attention to the springs, again relying on OE methods, which in the case of springs means frequency tuning. Frequency-tuned coil springs share harmonious oscillation characteristics that allow them to work as a matched set, front and rear. The benefit is that they help to keep the JK balanced and in contact with the road, even when driven at high speed over rough surfaces.
After the springs were tuned, the next step is shock tuning. Rather than use an off-the-shelf shock tune, we partner with the engineers at Bilstein to develop a proprietary tune matched to our unique suspension. Together we spent days at a proving grounds facility testing numerous valving combinations in an array of simulated driving conditions. Thanks to the previous optimization of AEV’s geometry and coil springs, it allows us to tune the shocks with a focus on damping suspension movement – rather than on trying to mask unwanted handling problems resulting from poor geometry or spring tuning.
Overall, no matter which Dualsport Suspension System you choose, no matter where you drive it or how you load it, you can count on your AEV JK 3.5″-4.5″ DualSport SC Suspension to remain comfortable, balanced and ready to explore.
Actual lift height may vary depending on vehicle weight.
Howdy, Chris!Great, Grand, and Wonderful! (Slight fun reference from Chris Farley). Was a pleasure ordering and receiving my new Sunflare Xplor 180W solar panel. Thank you very much for the great price for a quality product. I really appreciate all the knowledge and know-how you've expressed and shared with me. I feel very confident in a great build, utilizing your tools, expertise, and guidance. Antelope Valley Overland Supply is the way! Really appreciate all the shop talk, too. Thanks for listening and answering my barrage of questions. Am looking forward to a fun build.Thanks again for everything. Take care and be well.See ya again in the future.Respectfully, R.Sean Griffith '21 Ford Ranger w/ Superpacific
Great little shop that was long over due for the antelope valley. Whether you are stoping in for a quick question or you’re looking for that upgrade to fill your adventure needs, this shop and its staff have you covered.
I went to the grand opening and had a chance to speak with the owner. He’s a great honest guy who’s passionate about camping and overlanding. They only carry quality items, some that i personally use myself and some that I’m planning on buying. I was able to buy two front runner Wolfpack boxes and an element fire extinguisher that same day. It’s also nice to see all the cool rigs people bring on the second Saturday of each month for rigs and coffee. If you’re in northern LA county or passing by on the 14, I definitely recommend you try stopping by!

We love camping and land cruisers, the 80 series land cruiser. Best one, don’t even try to prove us wrong.
On a serious note, we love camping and land cruisers but we also love being able to share adventures and the process of helping you outfit your rig to better enjoy your adventures.
We outdoorsy people are like a special breed, we leave a perfectly comfy house, drive for hours (gas ain’t cheap), just to park on a dirt patch somewhere while fighting bugs, bears and pooping in holes and taking pictures we think are cool. Special!
Here at AV Overland, we provide our personal knowledge and great gear to help you on your crazy adventures.
