Review: Upgrade and Replacement Parts for your Volkswagen Amarok

By Kristen Garland

Wed Apr 22 2015

Since hitting our shores in 2011, the Volkswagen Amarok has established itself as a firm favourite with Aussies looking for an alternative to the established Japanese rivals. The Amarok is credited with creating the ‘luxury one tonner’ utility segment and blends European style and refinement with everyday hardwearing practicality.

Manufacturing the Amarok in Argentina has allowed VW to bring German Engineering to the Australian market at a competitive price and carve out some solid sales figures. This relative popularity has lead to a surge in aftermarket parts and accessories available for the VW workhorse, however not all of these keep to the same high Original Equipment standards.


Replacement and Upgrade Parts

Here at Spares Box we have put together a complete range of replacement and upgrade parts from leading OE suppliers to ensure your Amarok keeps running at its best year after year.


Lift Kits


For lift kits we have teamed up with suspension specialist Fulcrum to develop the Bilstein 2 inch lift kit, which comes complete with raised King Springs, premium Bilstein off road shock absorbers and SuperPro bush kit. If you’re really looking to take your suspension to the next level these can be combined with the custom engineered Roll Control sway bars that add dynamic stability at high speed.




Filtration needs are covered with the MANN Filter kit with air, oil and carbon activated cabin filters for petrol or diesel engines. MANN manufactures to OE specification and are the highest quality filters available for the Amarok. Fuel filters are covered by Ryco petrol filter Z760 or diesel Z951.




Stopping power is provided by dba rotors and drums with Bendix providing several friction material options. For heavy use and high loads Bendix fade resistant HD pads are recommended, typically lasting twice as long as standard compounds.




As winter approaches, keeping your vision clear is paramount. The Bosch wiper kit has matched driver and passenger side wiper blades with integral spoiler for maximum water dispersion.


We deliver Australia wide with free shipping on orders over $50, and our customer service is always here to assist with anything else you may need.
