Why Upgrade Your Suspension?

From the factory, most new 4WD vehicles are tuned for comfort during on road driving. Once weight is added in the form of accessories, passengers and cargo, performance and reliability suffer, especially when road conditions deteriorate.

Old Man Emu provide quality, application specific aftermarket suspension that is designed to increase load carrying capability and improve both vehicle handling and comfort across all terrains. A range of options provides increased ground clearance to better tackle more challenging terrain, and unlike some other accessories, you’ll notice the benefits of a new suspension system every time you drive your vehicle.


Why Old Man Emu?

Suspension systems, especially when referring to 4WDs, are extremely complex. Determining the right solution for each 4WD requires special attention to many factors, with weight being the most critical. Old Man Emu 4×4 suspension by ARB approaches this in a unique way.

Instead of offering a compilation of parts that have been chosen primarily to increase the vehicle’s ride height, OME 4×4 suspension provides a range

of tuned, matched and integrated systems, each offering optimum levels of comfort, load carrying capability and control characteristics.

The complete Old Man Emu suspension range incorporates more than just 4×4 shock absorbers and springs. At ARB, we take integration to the highest level with our own selection of bushes, U bolts, centre bolts, spring liners, trim packers and suspension fitting kits.


Land Rover Discovery Suspension

The Land Rover Discovery is a medium sized passenger wagon with extremely good off road capabilities, frequently used for weekend off road adventures.

With this in mind, OME engineers focussed on increasing ride height and wheel travel whilst controlling the mass of the vehicle over the full range of travel.

As well as a range of springs and shocks, providing ride height increases of 40mm (approximately), a variety of other components were developed to provide a comprehensive solution.

These include an upgraded steering damper to reduce the effect of wheel vibration and increase steering feel, a caster correction kit to maintain factory steering geometry specifications and trim packers to aid in fine tuning front and rear ride heights.
