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.
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.
Designed, developed and tested entirely in-house by ARB’s team of Old Man Emu ride engineers, BP-51 shock absorbers are engineered for each vehicle and utilise existing suspension mounting locations.
Providing unrivalled comfort and control over all surfaces, the revolutionary internal bypass design ensures there are no exposed fluid transfer channels on the exterior of the shock. This results in a design that suits existing suspension setups and offers greater longevity.
A BP-51 suspension upgrade is available to suit your vehicle.
The Toyota HiLux is a medium sized utility vehicle suited to both commercial and recreational uses. During development, OME engineers focussed on increasing ride height and load carrying capability whilst improving comfort, control and ride quality on all surfaces.
A range of front springs, with matching shocks, were developed to cater for differing vehicle setups and front ride height increases of approximately 40mm were achieved without the need for costly modification. A front trim packer was developed to further fine tune front ride heights.
Rear ride height increases of approximately 40mm to maintain the factory vehicle make, with greasable shackles, provide multiple options depending on the intended loads to be carried. An XL leaf has also been developed to assist with fine tuning the weight carrying capacity.
