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.
The Toyota Prado 90 is a medium sized passenger wagon with a good blend of off road capability and comfort for long distance touring. Being the first Prado to adopt an independent front suspension setup, the 90 Series proved extremely popular as an allrounder and remains a comfortable and capable vehicle to this day.
With a comfort orientated suspension setup from the factory our OME engineers focussed on increasing control and handling, particularly with extra loads on board, as well as providing increases in ride height.
A large range of springs and shocks were developed to cater for differing vehicle setups, achieving ride height increases of approximately 40mm without the need for costly modification. Extensive shock tuning was undertaken to optimise comfort, control and handling and trim packers were developed to fine tune front and rear ride heights.
