Why Old Man Emu?
During the development of Old Man Emu’s Nitrocharger Sport shock absorbers, particular focus was placed on how well they are matched to the specific springs they’ll be controlling; with Ride Control Engineers tailoring shock absorber valving to work with the different springs in the range, often resulting in multiple shock absorber options for each vehicle.
BP-51 High Performance Bypass Shock Absorbers
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. The internal bypass design ensures there are no exposed fluid transfer channels on the exterior of the shock.
Old Man Emu Suspension Range
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.
Who is Old Man Emu ?
The Old Man Emu brand has its roots firmly planted in off road racing and draws its name from the emu’s ability to maintain great stability when moving over uneven terrain at high speeds. From humble beginnings in 1976, ARB purchased the company in 1988 and has continued to develop and test the products in Australia’s harsh 4WD environments.
With an engineering focus for off road comfort and on road handling, today Old Man Emu supplies tailored suspension solutions for over 200 popular 4WD vehicles. Whether it’s for work or play, touring or hardcore off road, Old Man Emu has a selection of springs, shocks and associated suspension components that will transform your 4WD’s ride, handling and off road capabilities.
