Gross Vehicle Mass upgrades
If you regularly carry loads, tow caravans or are packing your 4×4 up for an extended trip, you may be exceeding your gross vehicle mass (GVM), which is illegal and potentially dangerous. With a GVM upgrade you can increase your vehicle’s weight carrying capacity to accommodate your extra load.

GVM FAQs Understanding GVM Upgrades in WA
What is Gross Vehicle Mass?
A Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) upgrade is an independently engineered and tested suspension solution which allows users to increase the payload of their vehicle from what the manufacturer originally designated.
If you are carrying common items such as tools, tool boxes, cargo, bull bars, winches, towbars, extra fuel, passengers, recovery gear and tow ball load such as a boat, caravan or camper trailer you will be adding weight to your vehicle and decreasing the available payload. Every vehicle has an official legally allocated GVM which cannot be exceeded.
Do I need to upgrade my GVM?
Without upgrading your vehicles GVM you may be driving a vehicle that doesn’t meet safety regulations or legal requirements.
