With development of BP-51 high performance bypass shock absorbers continuing to ramp up, we’re excited to release the latest application – the Jeep Wrangler JK.
Specifically designed for Wranglers running larger lifts of 3.5 to 4.5 inches, 4 shocks and 2 fits kits have been developed to cater for both the LWB (Unlimited) and SWB variants, for all models manufactured from 2006 onwards*.
Front shock absorber options include a direct replacement for the Old Man Emu JK 4 inch kit, along with a longer travel application with 50mm of additional open length**. The front fit kit includes all mounting hardware required to fit the shock absorber and reservoir. Additionally, a lower shock absorber mount has been designed to reposition the shock and provide clearance between the shock body and the chassis rail.
The rear shock has been designed to fit within the factory mounts and includes a stone guard to protect the shaft from stones flicked up by the front tyres. The rear fit kit consists of a reservoir piggy back clamp and mounting hardware.
* This application does not suit JKs fitted with more standard 2 inch suspension kits.
** The longer travel shock absorber does not suit OME’s JK 4 inch kit and additional modifications may be required during fitment.
Please note: For lifts greater than 2 inches, legality for public road use should be certified by the relevant Registration Authority. OME BP-51 high performance bypass shock absorbers are the result of an extensive research, development and testing program.
